My patient says they use "he/him" pronouns...what does that mean?
I was looking in my patient's chart and saw that they're nonbinary, and I have no idea what to do with that information.

What is the + in LGBT+ for anyway?
In this free webinar, Meris Shuwarger, BSN, RN (she/they) will give you an introduction to how to provide competent and inclusive care to the LGBT+ community.
Meris will provide some sobering statistics about the healthcare members of the LGBT+ community traditionally receive, and what fears a patient may have about seeking medical care as a member of this community.
She'll answer all of the above questions and more, and will show you some simple steps to changing your vocabulary, your ideas around sex, gender, and orientation, and some subtle ways to signal that you are a safe person for your LGBT+ patients.
