Hormone readiness assessment training for gender affirming care

Hormones are medically necessary for many gender diverse people, yet the process of starting hormone therapy requires navigating a gatekeeping system that can be challenging and restrictive. As health care professionals, we can be critical of existing systems while working within them to expand access to care, advocate for change, and help our gender diverse clients get the care they need.

In this anti-oppression workshop, you will discover how to conduct a low barrier hormone readiness assessment, and to create the necessary documentation to help gender diverse clients access hormone therapy. You’ll learn about the history of gender affirming care, including how gate-keeping has been built into the system and how practices are slowly changing.  You’ll explore a protocol based on an informed consent model that centers client safety and respect. and will have the opportunity to practice your skills through role plays and case studies. You will also learn the paths to accessing hormone therapy in BC, and be given templates and sample reports to use to create your own reports that will meet WPATH version 8 standards of care.

You’ll leave feeling ready to offer hormone readiness assessments to gender diverse clients. This workshop is designed for health care professionals, including registered clincial counsellors, social workers, psychologists, physicians and nurses. You need to have basic competency working with trans, nonbinary and Two-Spirit clients before taking this training.
