Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Data Collection in Clinical Settings

Tuesday, March 5, 2013
2:00pm - 3:30pm

Presenter: Harvey Makadon, MD
Director, National LGBT Health Education Center at the Fenway Institute

This presentation will highlight the rationale for and how to collect sexual orientation and gender identity data in clinical settings. Current data collection practices in most clinical settings do not include questions about sexual orientation or gender identity. The call for LGBT data collection in clinical settings is coming from national stakeholders including the Department of Health & Human Service and the Joint Commission, and has been highlighted in a report released by The Institute of Medicine in 2011 entitled, The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People: Building a Foundation for Better Understanding.
