How to Be a Better Ally Webinar
May 11 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am PDT
Presenter, Paul Iarrobino, is an accomplished speaker, trainer and trusted advisor with over three decades of gerontology experience.
Imagine living openly, marching in pride parades and fundraising for community causes important to you, but then having to hide who you are in your own home out of fear that you will not be accepted by your caregivers.
This a sad reality for a growing number of LGBT+ older adults, but as a helping professional you can make a difference.
Paul Iarrobino will help us better understand how to provide culturally competent care for LGBT+ older adults as conscientious professionals. Paul will bring practical solutions, best practices and humor to this informative and interactive training.
By the end of this educational program, participants will be able to:
- Explain the importance of understanding LGBT+ terminology and using terms appropriately
- Identify historical oppression and trauma experienced by LGBT+ older adults, barriers to accessing services, and ways to create a more welcoming LGBT+ environment
- Describe ways to provide agile and inclusive care based on current research findings, best practices and field experience
Feel free to invite a professional colleague to join.
RN/LPN/SW/CCM will receive one continuing education credit for successful attendance, completion of a simple quiz and evaluation form. All attendees will be provided a professional agenda and PowerPoint slides prior to the live presentation.
