There are several resources I have included at the end, but to summarize the implications of this decision, I directly quote the source from NPR, which states:“It is one of many rules and regulations put forward by the Trump administration that defines ‘sex discrimination’ as only applying when someone faces discrimination for being female or male, and does not protect people from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Supporters of the new rule said this is a necessary reversal of Obama-era executive overreach and will reduce confusion about the legal meaning of ‘sex discrimination.’”
What are your thoughts on this change in rule as it relates to transgender patients?
2. Where do you draw the line between a provider’s refusal to treat because of a lack of knowledge on transgender health issues and refusal to treat because of discrimination?
3. Broadly speaking in terms of cultural competency, there is a revised term known as cultural humility. How would you compare and contrast cultural competency vs. cultural humility?
4. The author of this case study notes, “Every practicing physician will encounter transgender patients in his or her practice. Yet medical education in the United States is failing to teach medical students and residents how to care for this population” (pg. 134). What type of trainings for providers might help close the gap in care for transgender patients? If you were a health policy analyst, what might be the pros and cons of mandating cultural humility transgender trainings for providers? Consider important factors like cost, impact, feasibility, etc. What alternative policies might you suggest to increase access to care for transgender patients?
