The education task force will address the lack of competency education about the LGBTQ+ population within DPT and PTA curricula and in continuing education for clinicians. They will develop educational resources for dissemination and create presentations for conferences. They will also support and perform research to further our knowledge of the LGBGQ+ community and physical therapy.
Currently, this task force is creating an LGBTQIA 101 handbook for members to use at their clinic or educational institution.
There are also plans to create educational presentations, which will be shared at state and national conferences, and to support and disseminate research on LGBTQIA healthcare.
