Despite substantial LGBT cancer health disparities, there are no LGBT cultural competency trainings tailored for oncologists. Here we describe the systematic development of a web-based, oncology-focused LGBT cultural competency training.
A literature review regarding LGBT cancer outcomes and competency training was conducted to identify potential training content. An expert panel meeting, including LGBT cancer survivors, cultural competency experts, oncologists, a web designer, and an instructional designer, was held to solidify the training content focus. Following the panel, the training was developed in collaboration with an instructional designer, a web designer, and LGBT community members.
The training modules include: 1) LGBT Basics; 2) Inclusive Environments; 3) Initiating Oncology Care with LGBT Patients; and 4) Issues in Cancer Survivorship among LGBT Patients. Module content is interactive, and models effective communication.
The process of collaboration with a diverse group of stakeholders and three cancer centers in Florida has resulted in a practical and efficient web-based resource for LGBT cultural competency training for oncologists.
Feedback from stakeholders indicates that training in this area is needed and will be well-received by oncologists. We are currently conducting an evaluation of this training among oncologists and LGBT community members.
