This qualification has been developed for learners who need to be more aware of how to comfortably interact with and support lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people in a health and social care environment.
It has been designed to make learners aware of the LGBT history and culture and the impact of language, stereotyping and assumptions relating to LGBT people. It also explores the barriers to care for LGBT people and how cultural beliefs, religion, faith and values can impact on LGBT people. It also looks at the collection of LGBT personal data and information and considers how to promote mental well-being for LGBT people.
The qualification also covers specialist areas of care which relate to a LGBT person with learning difficulties, dementia or requiring end of life care.
The range of units contained in this qualification will enable the learner to gain an understanding of the history and culture of the LGBT movement, some of the barriers to receiving care, as well as the importance of using appropriate language, not stereotyping nor making assumptions about LGBT people. It also enables the learner to know the need for LGBT personal data and information to be collected, the need for positive partnership working for LGBT people receiving care and how to promote and support mental well-being for LGBT people. The learner will also gain an understanding in how cultural and religious beliefs impact on LGBT people receiving care and how stigma and discrimination negatively impacts the mental health of LGBT people.
The specialist units contained in this qualification will enable the learner to gain an understanding of how to provide support to LGBT people with a learning disability, how dementia impacts on LGBT people and how to respond sensitively to the wishes of an LGBT person at end of life.
