One Sentence Presentation Summary: SANE’s need to feel comfortable with all aspects of patient care, transgender patients are assaulted at higher rates than the average populations but rarely seek services. This presentation explains the need for utilizing transgender genital teaching associates in your program.
In November/December 2019 three female to male transgenders students went through an intensive training to become gynecological (forensic) teaching associates to assist in our agency’s clinical skills lab. This presentation will begin with a basic introduction to raise awareness to the myriad issues faced by people of this very marginalized community as well as briefly explore critical data. The presenters will then review the extensive training process and discuss ways in which the invaluable knowledge of the graduates has been utilized in many areas of the multi-disciplinary member’s education including basic health care needs, how the patient is impacted following an assault and assessment of genitalia. The three forensic teaching associates (FTA’s) are in various stages of transition which is helpful for the nurse’s clinical skills assessment. Also, each of the forensic teaching associates (FTA’s) has a different point of view and personal experiences which helps with the knowledge base for students attending educational classes. You will hear from two of the FTA’s, the trainer and the program manager in an environment where questions can be plenty in order to build on your knowledge to provide better care to your patients.
Three anticipated learning outcomes: Participants will be able to:
- Discuss transgender patient care
- Identify the need for Clinical Skills labs to use transgender patients
- Discover best methods of evidence collection for the transgender patient
