Towards Culturally Safe Care of LGBTQ2S+ Clients

Kirstin McLaughlin, RN BScN (Hons.) MPH 
What does it mean to be culturally safe? When using this term with students, how are we defining “culture?” “Towards Culturally Safe Care of LGBTQ2S+ Clients” seeks to explore the history of this unique population within Canada; provide a safe space in which to deconstruct participant’s beliefs; examine existing and evolving vocabulary used in describing the community; acknowledge persistent barriers and resulting health disparities experienced by community members; and provide practical suggestions for working with this distinct population.
