LGBTQ Inclusive Practice for Aged Care Sector In-Person Training
Expand accessibility to your ageing clients by providing a safe, LGBTQ-inclusive space that promotes and delivers exceptional person-centred care.
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) clients come from all cultures and walks of life. Their lived experiences and potential differences in gender and/or sexualities, as compared to the broad population, may require unique approaches in how you communicate and care plan for the future.
Improve your provision of person-centred care and elevate your ageing clients’ overall experience with a full-day “LGBTQ Aged Care Inclusive Practice” training. Guided by a qualified ACON facilitator, this training will help you expand your understanding of LGBTQ people and communities through discussion with like-minded professionals, video testimonials, and engaging in learning activities.
