Proposal Abstract

Towards Culturally Safe Nursing Care of LGBTQ2S+ Clients Kirstin McLaughlin, RN BScN (Hons.) MPH and Dr. Eric Haywood-Farmer What does it mean to be culturally safe? When using this term with students, how are we defining “culture?” How do we appreciate intersectionality in our pursuit of classrooms and communities which are radically inclusive? “Towards Culturally Safe Nursing Care of LGBTQ2S+ Clients” seeks to share one faculty member’s journey to reach students by asking them to walk in the shoes of an LBGTQ2S+ individual seeking access to healthcare. The presentation will explore the history of this unique population within Canada; provide a safe space in which to deconstruct participant’s beliefs; examine existing and evolving vocabulary used in describing the community; acknowledge persistent barriers and resulting health disparities experienced by community members; and provide practical suggestions for working with this distinct population. Within the last year, the aforementioned education has been presented to Thompson Rivers University School of Nursing faculty and students, University of British Columbia post graduate second year family medicine residents, Royal Inland Hospital acute psychiatry nursing staff, and most recently, with participants at the 2017 ENABC Conference.
