Fulfills the unmet need for a clinically focused guide to LGBT preventive and specialty medicine
• Edited and written by the renowned experts of the Vanderbilt Program for LGBTI Health, one of only two such programs in the United States
• Evidence-based "best practice" guidelines
• Organized by primary care and relevant specialty care areas
Written by experienced clinicians and edited by Vanderbilt Program for LGBTI Health faculty, this book contains up-to-date expertise from physicians renowned for their work in LGBT health. This important text fills an informational void about the practical health needs of LGBT patients in both the primary care and specialty settings remains, and serves as a guide for LGBT preventive and specialty medicine that can be utilized within undergraduate medical education, residency training, and medical practice. Beginning with a short review of LGBT populations and health disparities, it largely focuses on the application and implementation of LGBT best practices within all realms of medical care. In addition, the book offers recommendations for the integration of LGBT health into systems-based practice by addressing intake forms and electronic health records, as well as evidence-based emerging concerns in LGBT health.
This is a must-have volume for medical students, residents, and practicing physicians from all medical specialties
