Ongoing Cultural Competence Trainings
|Becoming Visible- Using Cultural Humility in Asking Sexual Orientation Gender Identity (SOGI) Questions||
One of San Mateo County BHRS’ strategic initiatives is to reduce healthcare disparities in the LGBTQ+ populations. In order to achieve this goal, we will start collecting data on sexual orientation and gender identity of all our patients/clients. This will require extensive staff training in LGBTQ+ health and psychosocial issues faced by the LGBTQ+ populations.
