Course Description:

 One commonly used model for practice transformation is the patient-centered medical home (PCMH).  The PCMH model transforms how primary care is coordinated and delivered by emphasizing comprehensive, team-based care that places the patient at the center.  When implemented successfully, the PCMH model leads to higher quality care at a lower cost, improving both the patients’ and the providers’ experience of care.  The Health Services Resource Administration (HRSA) supports health centers seeking to achieve PCMH recognition through the HRSA Accreditation and Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition Initiative.  This course uses the framework of a patient-centered medical home to improve health care and health outcomes specifically for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) patients and families.  As an underserved and vulnerable population, LGBT people experience disparities in both health care and health status.  Reducing these disparities and improving LGBT health are among the objectives in the US Department of Health and Human Services; Healthy People 2020 initiative. This course is based upon material published by the National LGBT Health Education Center, a program of the Fenway Institute, and is available as an open access article.

 

This course on patient-centered medical homes for LGBT patients and families is designed for social workers, professional counselors, psychologists, nurses, and substance abuse counselors, who do clinical work.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of LGBT patient-centered medical homes.  The course material includes a review of health disparities faced by the LGBT community.  It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal.
