In this 2-hour interactive training, participants will consider the challenges lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer clients face when seeking care for an unintended pregnancy, including provider bias, environmental barriers, and lack of provider training on LGBQ+ identities. Participants will learn how these challenges are made more complicated when a client holds additional marginalized identities. Participants will gain knowledge to apply best practices in serving LGBQ+ clients who are seeking care for unintended pregnancy.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Describe at least one factor that may contribute to increased incidence of unintended pregnancy for LGBQ+ individuals
- Describe at least one factor that may impact a LGBQ+ individual’s ability to access reproductive healthcare
- Explain at least two best practices in supporting LGBQ+ individuals in accessing reproductive healthcare
- State at least one intended practice change in referring LGBQ+ individuals to abortion services
