21 Mar 2023,7:08 AM


Conduct a literature search to locate a journal article related to people's health or health care practices from the LGBTQIA population. You should consider only articles published within the last five (5) years. Refer to the Krehely (2009) article, How to Close the LGBT Health Disparities Gap summary.

Discuss any changes made since this article was published? In June 2009, President Obama issued a directive on same-sex domestic partner benefits. Discuss the significance of this directive to healthcare access for this population.

Analyze this encounter with a healthcare professional: Doctor, I'm gay." "Great. We'll test you for HIV today." "But I'm not having sex."
"How much do you drink?" Is this appropriate? Why? Why not? How, with humility, would you have approached this assessment with the patient?
This module will discuss culturally competent and sensitive care in geographically displaced people and care for the LGBTQIA population. "Migrant agricultural workers are the backbone of the multibillion-dollar agricultural industry in the United States" (Kersey-Matusiak, 2019).

It is estimated that 3 million migrant farmworkers and their dependents traverse the United States each year to harvest various crops, 85% of which must be cultivated and picked by hand. Consider that sixteen percent of migrant farmworkers are women who are of childbearing age. Their sometimes undocumented status poses a significant healthcare dilemma and deter them from accessing much-needed care.

Still, nurses and other healthcare professionals must practice cultural humility and sensitivity when providing care to this population when they seek healthcare. This is equally important when caring for people who identify as LBGTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual).

Social stigma and discriminatory laws associated with both populations hinder their access to healthcare and cause biases. People experiencing stigma, discrimination, and oppression in society who then face this when seeking healthcare may experience extensions of this psychological distress and trauma (Kersey-Matusiak, 2019).

This module will provide a starting point for assessing your attitudes and beliefs about working with individuals whose sexual orientation or gender identity may differ from yours. Keep this in mind if you are part of the majority group that identifies as heterosexual and/or cisgender (those individuals whose gender identity matches the gender assigned to them at birth).

Suppose you are someone who identifies as a member of the LGBTQIA population. In that case, you may also find your self-understanding expanded and your skills refined in working with others in this context as you continue to integrate your identity with your emerging professional nursing identity (Kersey-Matusiak, 2019).

Module Goals
Describe the breadth of cultural diversity within the three dominant migrant streams.
Specify factors that limit or impede access to farmworkers and their dependents to health services.
Discuss significant health risk factors associated with the migratory lifestyle.
