Faculty and simulation educators developed a partnership with a community clinic that provides gender-affirming medical care to transgender and nonbinary people. The clinic developed a simulation for midwifery and women’s health nurse practitioner students and obstetrics and gynecology residents. Then, the educators evaluated the impact of the simulation on the learners. At this 2021 Annual Meeting session, the presenters will share the following:
- Our awesome partnership with community members
- Key aspects of the learning simulation
- What we found in terms of learner responses
- How this kind of teaching/learning can continue
This will be an interesting session — especially for educators looking for strategies to incorporate gender-inclusive care and interprofessional learning experiences into their curricula. Any interested midwives are welcome to attend.
You can learn more about our simulation to teach learners about respectful care for transgender and non-binary people at the upcoming ACNM 66th Annual Meeting, held virtually May 23 – 25, 2021.
