Rationale

May 5 – Language Considerations: 

According to Lambda Legal’s study, When Health Care Isn’t Caring, 70% of transgender or gender non-conforming patients have experienced some level of discrimination in healthcare, including medical professionals refusing to touch them, using excessive precautions, refusing to provide required care, using harsh or abusive language, violations of confidentiality, inappropriate questions/examinations, blaming them for their health status, or being physically rough or abusive. Additionally, 52% of transgender respondents reported that they believed they would be refused medical services because of their LGBTQ status. In a 2015 study, 23% of respondents who identified as transgender Americans reported that they avoided seeking necessary health care when sick or injured in the past year because of fear of being mistreated as a transgender person. Taking these statistics into consideration, it is critical that clinicians are aware of considerations for the appropriate care of all individuals. This is especially true with regards to clinicians treating patients with pelvic health concerns.

Use of appropriate language is oftentimes an early indication of a clinician’s knowledge regarding ability to provide inclusive, welcoming care and is a critical step in building therapeutic alliance with their patient.

May 12 – Hormonal Therapy and Preoperative Considerations for the Transgender Person:

Gender identity has emerged as a pivotal topic in today’s society. It is estimated that 0.5-1.3% of the population in the United States has gender dysphoria. There has been a steady incline in number of people undergoing gender confirming surgery which has a major impact on pelvic floor structures. It is crucial for therapists to understand the physical changes that occur with hormonal therapy and/or surgery to effectively treat patient’s complaints.

May 19 – Gender Affirmation Surgeries: 

Gender identity has emerged as a pivotal topic in today’s society. There has been a steady incline in number of people undergoing gender affirmation surgeries which has a major impact on pelvic floor structures. It is crucial for therapists to understand the surgical procedures, complications that may arise, as well as the new anatomy to effectively treat pelvic floor and other orthopedic related conditions.

May 26 – Evaluation and Treatment of Transgender Patients with Pelvic Health Concerns:

The number of gender affirmation surgeries performed is increasing consistently, and gender affirmation surgeries often directly impact pelvic structures and pelvic floor muscles. Additionally, 42% of patients undergoing surgery have been found to have pre-existing pelvic floor dysfunction. Therapists who treat patients with pelvic health complaints are likely to see a concurrent increase in patients referred for services both before and after gender affirmation surgeries. It is critical that therapists have knowledge of current evidence-based evaluation and treatment strategies for these conditions, and sensitive to the needs of this patient population.
