Abstract (Summary)

Health disparities persist for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) identified people. Disparities can be combated through health care provider training and education in cultural competence. Improved health outcomes have been noted in primary care provider cultural competence training for other special populations including people that are HIV positive, people with limited literacy or limited English proficiency, and people from different racial or ethnic backgrounds. LGBT cultural competency training can play a pivotal role in health care professionals attitude and behavior change to reduce health disparities for LGBT people.
