Health Care experiences of the LGBTQ Community in Peterborough and County and the Kawartha Lakes

Proj. #:4752
Description: This project will identify gaps in primary and emergency health care service as experienced by LGBTQ individuals. This research will support health care equality and equity for the LGBTQ community and support the local health care providers to provide culturally competent and equitable health care to the LGBTQ community. The project will break down into two areas of research, one looking at the LGBTQ community’s experiences of health care and the other looking at policies and approaches taken by the healthcare profession in supporting LGBTQ patients.
