The Assessment Tool for LGBTQ-Inclusive Hospice and Palliative Care  

For hospice and palliative care professionals, learning how to provide LGBTQ-inclusive care requires a different approach than the typical one-hour "cultural competency training." LGBTQ-inclusive care isn't about how to care for LGBTQ patients and families - it's about how you care for all the patients and families you serve, as well as about your employment policies and benefits. 

LGBTQ-Inclusive Hospice and Palliative Care: A Practical Guide to Transforming Professional Practice provides a detailed roadmap to delivering inclusive care. Based on the content of the book, the author has created an assessment tool for programs to use in auditing their current policies and practices.
