The Human Rights Campaign recently released two news resources that hospitals and health systems can use to provide better care for LGBTQ children and youth.

The resources include a guide providing best practices for clinics and hospitals seeking to promote the health and well-being of transgender and non-binary youth through the creation of multidisciplinary care clinics.

The second resource aids children’s hospitals’ efforts to foster LGBTQ inclusion for their patients, the families of patients and employees.
