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.
