Disparities in Cancer Care for Sexual and Gender Minority Patients | POPS 2023
Are you interested in providing better care for sexual and gender minority cancer patients but don't know where to start? This session will be an overview of different issues sexual and gender minority patients can present with and basic steps providers should have in place to help counter discrimination-related disparities experienced by this population. The session will review what is known about increased physical and especially psychosocial risks for this population; how that constellation of experiences creates differential care considerations; how medical mistrust and social support are two main barriers to care; and steps you can take in your practice today to counter these phenomena.
