This interactive workshop will involve discussion of 4 fictionalized, problem-based case scenarios. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on barriers to trans-inclusive reproductive health care, and then work collaboratively in small groups to propose strategies to mitigate those barriers. Trans people’s reproductive lives and health care needs prompt a critical consideration of how sex, gender, reproduction and parenting are tied up together; and how gendered health care service spaces and individual providers are frequently ill-equipped to address trans people’s unique health care needs, including but not limited to their reproductive health care needs.
Presented by A.J. Lowik at Summit 2019: Queering Healthcare Access and Accessibility, in Vancouver October 31 - November 1. For more information visit cbrc.net/summit.
