Have you ever experienced a lack of respect, affront to your dignity or microaggressions in the healthcare system? If so, you’ve probably been exposed to emotional harm.
Emotional harm can have long-term consequences and can affect patients’ trust and attitudes towards healthcare, that may subsequently also affect their physical health.
Participants at this session will:
- Gain an understanding of the theoretical concept of emotional harm.
- Be presented with examples and perspectives on how to prevent emotional harm for LGBTI+ people.
- Discuss how we can raise awareness about emotional harm in healthcare.
