Transgender Care: A Toolkit for Providers

Would you like your practice to become a virtual Center of Excellence (CoE)? We will present a structured and very practical approach to providing a high level of services within a primary care setting. We assume that you already have an understanding of hormones and how to prescribe. Now you need all the tools to get started. We will review our approach, which combines WPATH and ICATH models and follows nationally recognized guidelines for initiation and management of hormones for youth and adults. We will provide and review our intake forms, new patient templates, follow-up templates, Informed Consent documents, and patient letters. We will also discuss the logistics for tracking patient progress, teaching injections, working with pharmacies, coordinating with local mental health providers, other experts, and community groups in order to provide full spectrum CoE-type care.
