November 3, 2017 - Less than a minute read

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) teens have unique medical, cultural, and psychological needs that are not currently being adequately met by the healthcare community. This project seeks to design and implement simulation training for faculty and students at the School of Nursing, the Graduate School of Education, and the School of Social Policy and Practice to improve outcomes for a client population that has an elevated risk of depression, sexually transmitted infections, drug use, and suicide.
