Event description

Description


Aged care professionals, GPs and nurses are invited to this training session.

This half day training aims to support the development of culturally appropriate services for older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people. The training includes a mix of research presentations, videos and discussion in a safe and non-judgemental environment which encourages questions and open discussion.

Learning Outcomes:

On completion of this course you will be able to:

  • provide culturally appropriate services for older LGBTI people;
  • improve your awareness of the range of issues facing older LGBTI people, learn about relevant policy and legal issues, and understand aspects of good practice and inclusive care for LGBTI clients/residents.

This training is part of a national initiative, managed by the National LGBTI Health Alliance and funded by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services and delivered by Transgender Victoria (TGV).

Speakers: Sally Goldner and Andrew Eklund

Sally has been actively involved in Melbourne’s queer community for the last twenty years. This includes ongoing involvement with TransGender Victoria (now as Treasurer), presenter of 3 CR’s “Out of the Pan,” Treasurer of Bisexual Alliance Victoria and co-facilitator of Transfamily.

Andrew is a transman who is “husband” to loving partner Paul and carer to his 23 year old autistic son. Andrew is a founding member and the current President of FTM Shed, a support group for trans men. He is a qualified trainer with a Communications Degree and his passion is making lives better through front line service provision and practical training opportunities for staff strongly linked to real life experience
