Asking the question: inclusive data collection for gender and sexuality diverse clients
Creating lasting health outcomes means considering the client’s lived experience of gender identity, sexual orientation or intersex status and weaving this into their treatment plan. Gender and sexuality diverse clients have additional barriers in seeking appropriate treatment. As clinicians and workers in the AOD sector, creating a safe and comfortable space for clients is essential. Talking about gender identity and sexuality gets easier when workers understand the purpose behind asking these questions and gain more experience in asking.
