Supporting Transgender People in Healthcare - Virtual Training Sessions for QUB Staff and Students

Our colleagues in the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences collaborated with the School of Nursing and Midwifery to organise three training sessions, provided by Transgender NI for QUB Staff and Students.

The School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences and School of Nursing and Midwifery collaborated to offer QUB Staff and Students the opportunity to learn about language, healthcare issues, and good practice for inclusion for transgender children, young people and adults in health and social care.

Three virtual training sessions were delivered by Transgender NI which discussed:

  • Using the right language
  • Cultural competency
  • The demographics and experiences of the community
  • Common problems faced in Northern Ireland
  • The legislation and regulations affecting the community
  • How to best support trans communities
  • Resources for supporting trans people


  • 7 September 2020 (For QUB Staff)
