In collaboration with the University of Toronto’s Biomedical Communications program, Sherbourne Health Centre (SHC) and Rainbow Health Ontario (RHO) invite Ontario healthcare providers to attend a live demonstration and Q & A session to celebrate the official launch of the Trans Primary Care Guide.

A first of its kind in Canada, the Trans Primary Care Guide is an innovative online interactive tool to assist healthcare providers in offering primary and transition-related care to trans and gender-diverse patients. This easy-to-use electronic resource is based on SHC’s globally used Guidelines and Protocols for Trans Clients handbook, which was first published in 2009 and revised in 2015.

Q&A) for healthcare providers across the province.
