The National Standards for TGIQ Health and Navigating Health Environments

Trans health care consumers can create deep and lasting change in the competency and accessibility of providers in their local communities. How to effect that change, however, can be a complex process—especially without a clear roadmap. Using RAD Remedy’s experiences in developing the first community-driven standards for TGIQ care, we will discuss how individuals and organizations can create community needs assessments, use community advisory boards, engage in complaint and grievance processes, offer provider training resources, and creatively build efforts to create buy-in and build relationships with care providers in their own areas.
