LGBTQI health and education

LBQTI_image_webGay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer identifying, and individuals with differences of sexual development (LGBTQI) experience large inequalities in health outcomes from increased rates of illness such as breast cancer and cardiovascular disease through to high risk of mental health conditions. Thus there is a pressing need to ensure health professionals can develop the knowledge and competencies required to meet the healthcare needs of LGBTQI individuals. Researchers within the Department of Psychological Medicine and the Department of Psychology are interested in curriculum development and models of educational practise within medical schools and other professional training programmes.

Students who are interested in LGBTQI healthcare, pedagogy, and mixed methods should contact Dr Charlene Rapsey in the Department of Psychological Medicine or Dr Gareth Treharne in the Department of Psychology.
