Understanding Our Differences: LGBTQ Sensitivity Training for Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants in Long-Term Care Facilities

As our workforce and resident populations become more diverse, staff and caregivers should become more sensitive to each person’s differences in a way that ensures equality and acceptance for everyone – despite their race, age, gender, or sexual orientation.

This DVD outlines how to create a respectful and inclusive environment for both LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) residents and staff in long-term care facilities.

It will help caregivers and staff to:

  • understand the definitions of LGBTQ populations, as well as, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression
  • acknowledge differences and learn how to communicate honestly when those differences may affect their work
  • support LGBTQ inclusion among residents and employees

These effective guidelines are designed to enhance work productivity, boost morale, and decrease any discriminatory practices across the board. All levels of staff in all care settings will benefit from this relevant training program.
