Joint Commission Releases Field Guide on LGBT-Centered Care

A new field guide from the Joint Commission urges US hospitals to create a more welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment that contributes to improved health care quality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) patients and their families.  The field guide features a compilation of strategies, practice examples, resources, and testimonials designed to help hospitals in their efforts to improve communication and provide more patient-centered care to their LGBT patients.  The guide, Advancing Effective Communication, Cultural Competence, and Patient- and Family-Centered Care for the Lesgian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Community, was developed with support from the California Endowment and is available for free download here: http://www.jointcommission.org/assets/1/18/LGBTFieldGuide.pdf [CLAStalk list]
