About this book

Written by experienced clinicians and edited by Vanderbilt Program for LGBTI Health faculty, this book contains up-to-date expertise from physicians renowned for their work in LGBT health. This important text fills an informational void about the practical health needs of LGBT patients in both the primary care and specialty settings remains, and serves as a guide for LGBT preventive and specialty medicine that can be utilized within undergraduate medical education, residency training, and medical practice. Beginning with a short review of LGBT populations and health disparities, it largely focuses on the application and implementation of LGBT best practices within all realms of medical care. In addition, the book offers recommendations for the integration of LGBT health into systems-based practice by addressing intake forms and electronic health records, as well as evidence-based emerging concerns in LGBT health.

This is a must-have volume for medical students, residents, and practicing physicians from all medical specialties.

Reviews

“This book addresses the specific preventive, primary care, and specialty areas in caring for the LGBT community. … The audience consists of every primary care and specialty clinician who may care for an LGBT patient the world over. … this is a seminal publication, comprehensive and forward thinking. This should be used as an important step in a clinician’s life-long education.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2016)
