How can nurses provide safe, inclusive care for LGBTQ People:

1. address own assumptions, beliefs, values and attitudes about sexual orientation and gender diversity
2. reflect whether you regularly use inclusive language when taking a history from a client – ex: do you have a “partner”?
3. if a client does ID as being LGBTQ, do not ignore the comment, instead thank them for sharing the information, and indicate how knowing this can be important in providing the right care
4. when asking about whether the client is sexually active, if they are, ask whether their partners are men, women, trans, or some combination of (directly asking whether the client is LGBTQ can make them feel reluctant to tell the truth)
5. advocate for more inclusive language on forms we ask clients to fill out, and on educational material we give to clients (images of same-sex couples) etc, posters, etc.
6. be clear about the level of confidentiality that is possible in the clinical and public health agency -> adolescents especially may be very sensitive to this
7. familiarize myself with resources in the community that are LGBTQ-friendly
