Our Stories: Transgender and Non-binary Professionals On the Essence of Person-centered Care

In this moderated panel discussion, transgender and non-binary professionals will share their own life experiences and recommend affirming practices for communicating with and caring for people in this diverse community. They will illuminate how the practice of cultural humility, which holds an open and curious perspective free of judgment and assumptions, is essential for providing inclusive and equitable care.  Panelists will use their own stories to illustrate the diversity of transgender and/or non-binary experiences, dispel common misunderstandings, and identify helpful approaches. They will outline best practices to promote person-centered care for transgender and/or non-binary people encountered in medical settings and those living with serious illness.  Drawing on their dual experiences as both givers and receivers of care, the panelists will explore what matters most for transgender and/or non-binary people and how caring professionals can make a difference.
