Target Audience

If you are a pharmacist, nurse practitioner, or other health care professional involved in the comprehensive medication management of individuals living with mental health and/or substance use disorders, we invite you to participate in this online course.

Session Summary

Transgender patients are at a heightened risk of mental illness and suicidality, especially during puberty when physical characteristics emphasize the discrepancy in their gender identity. Gender-affirming care has shown to reduce this risk, but adolescents face unique barriers to receiving this care. This session will allow participants to implement destigmatizing language in their practice, recognize ideal gender-affirmation treatment strategies for pediatric patients, and identify barriers to receiving this care.
