Culturally Competent Care for GLBT Survivors

leave a comment »

VAWNet has a new resource available focusing on culturally competent care of LGBT survivors of sexual violence. Aside from the comprehensive article by Sabrina Gentlewarrior (printable version here), you can also access a variety of linked resources over on the summary page. This is a topic that is sorely underrepresented in the literature, so we may have to do a full clinical guide sometime soon, if you think it would be of interest…

Time once again for a run down of some of the new and noteworthy articles in the current literature. All of these are from the July/August/September issues. As always, please keep in mind this in no way a comprehensive list; simply items that have caught my attention from a selection of peer-reviewed journals. All links lead to PubMed abstracts; from there you can choose what’s worth a.) paying for; b.) a pilgrimage to your nearest medical library;  or c.) downloading via the full-text access you possibly have at your disposal.

Articles of Note: July Edition

Time once again for a run down of some of the new and noteworthy articles in the current literature. Most of these are from the June/July/August issues. As always, please keep in mind this in no way a comprehensive list; simply items that have caught my attention from a selection of peer-reviewed journals. Most links lead to PubMed abstracts (except for one, which goes to Ingenta); from there you can choose what’s worth a.) paying for; b.) a pilgrimage to your nearest medical library;  or c.) downloading via the full-text access you possibly have at your disposal.

Just a warning: it’s a lengthy list this month. There’s all kinds of good stuff being published right now…

Caring for Pediatric/Adolescent LGBT Patients

leave a comment »

The Children’s Hospital of Denver has an archived grand rounds presentation on caring for LGBT patients and their families in pediatric and adolescent medicine that was initially presented last November. It’s a 40 minute video with Powerpoint slides, and I particularly like that it’s focused on peds, since that subset of this specialized patient population is even less well represented in the online continuing education offerings.

Sadly, they don’t provide CEs for video archives, so no love there.
