Webinar held live on Monday, June 28. The focus of this session is to better enable procedural dermatologists to provide medically appropriate, culturally sensitive and culturally humble care to transgender and gender minority persons. Core concepts and terminology in gender diverse health care will be covered, as well as the role of procedural dermatology in gender affirmation along with management of complications of gender affirming care. The session will conclude with a panel discussion of pearls and pitfalls when providing care for this unique population as well as resources for building further knowledge and skills.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Define and apply appropriate terminology used for characterizing the gender diverse and transgender populations and describe basic demographics
  • Discuss general and dermatologic health disparities impacting the gender minority population and outline approaches to establishing a safe space for affirming care for these individuals
  • Outline the dermatologic management of gender diverse individuals with an emphasis on procedural affirmation, including hair removal, facial and body contouring, neurotoxins, and soft tissue augmentation
