Week 8 Discussion
For this assignment, you will review and reflect on the LGBT articles. These articles can be applied to healthcare providers in the multiple care settings. Discussion of the article is based on the course objectives and weekly content, which emphasize the core learning objectives for an evidence-based primary care curriculum. Throughout your nurse practitioner program, discussions are used to promote the development of clinical reasoning through the use of ongoing assessments and diagnostic skills, and to develop patient care plans that are grounded in the latest clinical guidelines and evidence-based practice.
• Discuss any “take-away” thoughts from the articles.
• How do you plan to make a positive impact on the care of LGBT patients when you become a NP?
• What attitudes/behaviors/communication/understanding is important for the NP to have?
• What specific screenings / interventions will you incorporate into practice when providing care to a LGBT patient?
