Earn free CME/CEU credit by completing online course in LGBTQ patient-centered care

October 21, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

UMHS is an organization committed to providing patient-centered care to a wide and diverse population. That is why all faculty and staff are encouraged to take advantage of free online courses focused on the health and well-being of LGBTQ patients.

The multitude of training options are provided in partnership with the National LGBT Health Education Center and participants who complete a course will receive CME/CEU credits.

For those new to the National LGBT Health Education Center, one of the following sessions will be ideal:

  • Creating an Inclusive Environment for LGBT Patients and Staff at Your Health Center: The National LGBT Health Education Center’s Heidi Holland, M.Ed., describes strategies and model policies for creating LGBT-inclusive health care spaces. These recommendations are designed to support health centers and other health care organizations in the outreach/recruitment, support, and retention of both LGBT patients and employees.

In addition to these suggested courses, there are more than 50 on-demand webinars and other learning modules with downloadable content available.

In order to receive CME/CEU credit, you need to register online with the National LGBT Health Education Center. If prompted to provide a facility ID, please enter 55786. You must complete a session and an evaluation in order to receive credit.

All employees are encouraged to complete their coursework by Nov. 1, which will help UMHS maintain its certification as a Healthcare Equality Index leader.

Thank you for raising awareness of our diverse patient population and contributing to their positive experience at UMHS.
