Purpose

Iowa hospitals are committed to serving their communities in countless ways and ensuring all patients receive access to high-quality care. This conference is designed for health care leaders and practitioners to better understand how to care for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ) community from a public and patient perspective and also as employers of a diverse workforce. This day-long workshop is facilitated in a non-accusatory manner so all participants feel comfortable as they begin to learn or deepen their understanding of LGBTQ issues.

Agenda

9 am

Safe Zone Workshop

Daniel Hoffman-Zinnel, EdD
Executive Director, One Iowa, Des Moines

Many health care professionals might not feel comfortable with the language or their own level of understanding how to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ) inclusive. This Safe Zone training will give participants a deeper familiarity and comfort with vocabulary and inclusive practices and will help identify ways hospitals can continue to be safe and welcoming environments for the LGBTQ community. This workshop introduces basic LGBTQ terminology and concepts, fosters an understanding of experiences and brings an overall awareness of LGBTQ issues, especially as they relate to health care. Participants will learn specific, applicable skills to create a safe and welcoming environment for patients and staff.

  • Define LGBTQ terminology and concepts.
  • Give examples of issues affecting the LGBTQ community.
  • Demonstrate three specific skills used to create safe and welcoming environments.
  • Apply skills to individual’s health care environment.
