LGBTQ Health Care
Health Equity Mini-Series (Part 2)
Co-sponsored by the Washington Patient Safety Coalition and the WSMA
Amish Dave, MD, MPH, a rheumatologist at Virginia Mason, and Amy Etzel, the implementation manager at the Bree Collaborative, outline
strategies to align care delivery with existing evidence-based, culturally sensitive standards of care for LGBTQ people in Washington state
to decrease health disparities. The three focus areas include communication, language, and inclusive environments; screening and taking a
social and sexual history; and LGBTQ-specific standards and systems of care.
