Executive Briefing and Staff Training

Produced by the HRC Foundation

Executive Briefing Overview

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.

The LGBTQ Long-Term Care Equality Index (LEI): Executive Briefing is an engaging and interactive self-paced eLearning series consisting of 3 half-hour sections. The series serves as an introduction to the purpose of the LEI, provides key terminology related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) identities and explores the latest research and information about LGBTQ people in long-term care settings. In addition, this series discusses policy and procedure recommendations related to serving LGBTQ residents and family members and identifies ways to assist long-term care communities in creating LGBTQ inclusive environments.

As a participant in the Long-Term Equality Index, after completing the self-assessment your community will receive access to the LEI executive briefing. To receive the link to the executive briefing and your unique facility ID (necessary to sign up) please email us at LEI@hrc.org.
