Towards Optimized Practice (Alberta Medical Association): Transgender Health (2019)
These practice tools are designed to be used by primary care providers who encounter an adult patient who is seeking care for gender dysphoria and to facilitate discussion of transition-related surgery. These recommendations are systematically developed statements to assist practitioner and patient decisions about appropriate health care for specific clinical circumstances and are not exhaustive.
Rainbow Health Ontario. Evidence-informed guide to help clinicians in their day-to-day practice. The 2019 edition includes revisions and expansions of recently available evidence in both general primary care and trans health.
It is the role of all health care providers to ensure that the care they deliver is responsive to the needs of their patients. It’s important to take time to understand and reflect on the ways we may need to evolve and adapt our own practice in order to create a welcoming, inclusive and affirming care experience for Indigenous patients and their families.
These guidelines reflect the current practice at Sherbourne Health in the management of trans patients. We do not present it as a ‘Standard of Care’ but instead as a guide to help clinicians in their day-to-day practice.
