The Human Rights Campaign Foundation and the American Pharmacists Association released a guide for pharmacies on transgender and gender-diverse inclusion, Providing Inclusive Care and Services for the Transgender and Gender Diverse Community: A Pharmacy Resource Guide. The guide serves as an educational tool and a resource to pharmacists and pharmacy staff on how to be inclusive to transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse patients.
The guide outlines six qualities of a pharmacy that is inclusive of transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse individuals, including knowledge of key LGBTQ terms, inclusive communication, gender-related data management, visible symbols of support, staff training and knowledgeable and patient-centered care. The resource then takes a deep dive into these six components and how pharmacies can implement these in their everyday work. Along with the full guide, HRC and APhA have also released several quick guides that are accessible and easy for pharmacists and pharmacy staff to use throughout the day.
