Good and not-so-good advice about gender.

The Joint Commission, which requires hospitals to meet specific criteria in order to receive accreditation, is investigating the healthcare experiences of LGBTQ individuals in order to improve the quality of care we receive. If you have an experience to share or know of someone who might or just think you might know someone for whom this is relevant, please repost or forward this link. Or just give them the email address: lgbt@jointcommission.org

Is this limited to any specific country?

I didn't even consider that when I posted. My apologies. The Joint Commission evaluates U.S. hospitals only.

If you are outside the U.S., but have advice for them on how to improve care, I would write anyway. Or, if your country is not investigating the care of LGBTQ individuals and does not have standards of care established, you could write to the appropriate commissions or organizations and urge them to do so, using the Joint Commission here as an example.
