This Advanced Gender Affirming Hormone Therapy (GAHT) online learning course module has been co-designed and developed for eligible prescribers of gender affirming hormonal therapy, including those working in a sexual health clinical setting or delivering sexual health care in primary health care settings.
It consists of six case studies that can be completed in any order. It will take you approximately one-and-a-half hours to complete all six case studies.
By the end of this module, learners will be able to:
- Assess clients holistically in prescribing GAHT, including but not limited to pharmaceutical contraindications, fertility, contraception, sexual function, disease prevention and adverse health outcomes.
- Implement an informed consent model of care in prescribing GAHT.
- Interact with clients respectfully, making them feel comfortable by creating an affirming, safe and inclusive environment beyond the clinical consultation.
- Integrate effective referral pathways to seek expertise and coordinate care for clients, their partners and families.
