Daily Theme: Improving Care Through Innovation and Entrepreneurship
The LGBTQ population is one that is often discriminated or invisible in health care. As a Nurse Practitioner in a large urban student health center, my passion for working with this population fostered this quality improvement project in pursuit of the DNP at Frontier. It established a means to identify patients who identify as gender and sexual minorities through the collection of sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) information and move the student health center towards providing right care to avoid health disparities for these patients. Through the process of project design and implementation I found my voice and the confidence to become a leader. This presentation will review my personal journey to Frontier’s DNP program, introduce the concept of SOGI, review health disparities for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender patients, review my project implementation, discuss how it will continue to grow and be applied to my community and review how the DNP has changed my practice.
The session video will be available on this page at the scheduled date and time.
