The issues and challenges facing transgender health care and the associate risks are multiplying in the US. As the number of laws and regulations increase that support the transgender community, there are social backlashes that both ignite and inflame both sides of the issue. Health care institutions are caught in a trap between wanting to provide the best care available, and social and patient safety issues. There has been a dearth of information available in the past, but more research and best practices are being published. Additional education in both the academic and professional areas is critical, and a fundamental change in approaching transgender patients is critical. Failure to do so could lead to patient harm, increased liability, increased regulatory actions, and moral disengagement from providers and staff.

  • Identify health and mental health issues relevant for the transgender population
  • Discuss factors that promote health and mental health disparities in the transgender population
  • Explain potential recommendations to reduce health disparities and increase quality of services to the transgender community
