Free GP webinar – LGBTI AOD Use

ACON, with the support of Central and Eastern Sydney PHN, is providing a free and essential two part webinar for General Practitioners.

Rainbow Buzz will strengthen your understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people and communities to deliver more inclusive, informed and appropriate care while supporting clients experiencing issues with alcohol and or other drugs (AOD).

Learning outcomes:

• Increase inclusivity to LGBTI clients by differentiating assigned sex, gender identity, sexual orientation and sex characteristics.
• Summarise LGBTI mental health and alcohol and or other drug disparities.
• Understand the context of alcohol and or other drug use within the LGBTI communities.
• Implement inclusive practice behaviours to decrease barriers to service for LGBTI people.

Webinar sessions:

Saturday 1 December and Saturday 8 December - 10.00 am to 11.00 am.

Each session is two parts, scheduled at the same time, one week apart. Participants must attend both portions to receive credit.
