A group of trans, non-binary and Two Spirit youth (including Indigenous youth) at YouthCO have created a workshop aimed at service providers and clinicians about providing gender affirming care to youth most impacted by Hep C (and HIV). We are able to offer this workshop to providers across BC, and currently have a workshop scheduled in Victoria on March 15 open to 25 participants.
If you would like to bring us to your team, learn more about the project and get in touch at http://www.youthco.org/innovationfund19.
In this workshop, we will explore strategies to offer gender affirming and trans-inclusive care to trans, Two-Spirit, and non-binary youth who may benefit from Hep C prevention, support, and treatment. Participants will deepen their understanding of barriers trans youth face in accessing healthcare and support for Hep C prevention, treatment and care, and discuss actionable solutions.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Incorporate gender affirming and trans-inclusive language and terminology in their practice and service provision.
- Identify barriers that trans, Two-spirit and non-binary youth face in accessing healthcare and/or harm reduction services at their practice and articulate strategies for reducing these barriers.
- Describe cissexism and its relationship to Hep C
- Provide accurate harm reduction information and tools to youth navigating cissexism
This is a 90 minute workshop facilitated by trans, Two-Spirit, and non-binary youth in British Columbia. We are able to offer this workshop in-person across British Columbia, and we may be able to offer a webinar version as well.
