Why have training in LGBTQ+ resident-centered care?

As all healthcare organizations know, employee training is critical for policies to be lived out fully and consistently. Organizations have found training particularly important for ensuring LGBTQ+ resident-centered care. Training employees in LGBTQ+ concerns not only ensures that LGBTQ+ residents receive equitable and culturally competent care. It also helps to improve the general community climate towards all LGBTQ+ people, specifically LGBTQ+ employees.
