American College of Physicians publishes 'The Fenway Guide to LGBT Health'
Date:9/17/2007

disconnect between doctor and patient.

"We as medical providers need to be as knowledgeable as possible about health issues impacting all of our patients, especially groups with unique health disparities, like LGBT people," said Dr. Makadon, Director of Training & Education at The Fenway Institute and associate professor at Harvard School of Medicine. "We also need to be comfortable talking to sexual and gender minorities in a non-judgmental way about behaviors and situations that result in these disparities so that they are comfortable being honest and open with us. Doctor-patient communication is an essential component of providing quality health care."

"The Fenway Guide to LGBT Health" contains chapters on subjects as diverse as adolescence and coming out; LGBT couples and families with children; health promotion and disease prevention; mental health and substance abuse; transgender health; and patient communication and creating a more welcoming office environment.
