Palliative care is person centered care, a focus which takes the whole person into account. This includes identity, sexuality, and relationships. Unfortunately, some types of relationships and identities have historically been less valued. This talk will focus on things to consider when working with LGBTQ people. The presentation will cover some basic vocabulary, context of the lives of older LGBTQ people, suggestions on making your workplace safer for LGBTQ people, and resources for further reading and exploration.
