Simms/Mann UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology: Cancer and LGBT Patients and Families
Research shows that specific risk factors and health disparities may create a disproportionate cancer burden for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. This session sensitizes participants to LGBT cancer risk factors and the unique issues faced by LGBT cancer patients and their families. As a result of numerous social factors, many LGBT patients face obstacles finding preventive services and accessing treatment and support once cancer has been diagnosed. Additionally, there are important considerations about coming out to treatment providers, psychosocial care for non-traditional family structures, and discussion of survivorship issues and end of life care needs in terms sensitive to the LGBT population (Oct 8, 2013).
