Ep. 6 - Providing Palliative Care to LGBTQ Patients

December 13, 2019


In our 6th episode of HPNA’s Podcast Corner, we offer listeners a framework to explore nursing advances in LGBTQ-inclusive palliative care. Nina Barrett, palliative care nurse practitioner, frames the unique health needs of the LGBTQ palliative care patient, including challenges regarding disclosure and advance care planning. Nina calls to light the health disparities affecting the LGBTQ population, their historical roots, and the extra challenges facing transgender patients. This episode delivers concise, actionable approaches to facilitate practice change by incorporating evidence-based strategies to provide palliative nursing care consistent with the LQBTQ patient’s values, preferences, views, and beliefs.
