UR CTSI Seminar: Implementing Practice Change to Improve Cancer Care Delivery to Sexual and Gender Minority Patients

Charles S. Kamen, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Surgery , Cancer Control, will present, "Implementing Practice Change to Improve Cancer Care Delivery to Sexual and Gender Minority Patients" at the second UR CTSI Seminar of the spring semester.

In this talk we will discuss barriers and facilitators to implementing practice change around care of sexual and gender minority (SGM) patients, with a specific focus on cancer care. Relevant practice change components to address unique needs of SGM patients include non-discrimination policies that include sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI), collection of SOGI data, and training of providers in the needs of SGM patients (with a specific emphasis on cancer-related health disparities). Implementation of these change components may impeded by factors in broader society (e.g., lack of state-level non-discrimination laws), at the level of the practice or provider (e.g., bias), and within SGM patients (e.g., previous experiences of discrimination).

At the conclusion of this presentation participants should be able to:

  • Describe the specific needs of SGM patients in the context of cancer care
  • Discuss practice-level changes that could address these unique needs.
  • Address barriers and facilitators that may affect implementation of practice change for this population.
