HealthImaging (6/21, Rohman) reports researchers found around 75% “of breast imaging facilities in the U.S. do not have explicit policies for transgender patients and do not offer nondiscrimination training to appropriately care for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) patients.” The findings were published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology.
The Radiology Business Journal (6/21, Walter) reports the researchers wrote, “Overall, structural policies were weak in the realm of transgender care. Few facilities offered any sort of LGBT training for their faculty and staff, and only a third of such available training was mandatory. Most facilities did not have any explicit policies for transgender care, nor any explicit nondiscrimination policies for transgender employees.” Aunt Minnie (6/22) also covers the story.
