Everyone should be provided with equitable access to healthcare, shelter, food and safety when they are in need. Research shows that for trans* individuals, this is often not the case. Most service providers have not had the opportunity to learn about issues in working with trans* individuals accessing their services. Yet trans* and gender diverse people are at heightened risk for mental health, physical health and/or substance use problems and face additional barriers to accessing services.

This course will address core competency issues in working with trans* populations; such as recognizing trans*-specific issues to consider and barriers to service, recommendations for improving service provision and developing trans*-inclusive policies.

Registration: For people with VCH email addresses*, go to the Vancouver Coastal Health course page:
