The role of culture in health workers' approach to LGBTQ+ patients

Pezzella, Alfonso ORCID: (2021) The role of culture in health workers' approach to LGBTQ+ patients. Diversity in Research Podcast. [Other]


The IENE9 research project looks at intercultural training for nurses and health care workers in Europe with a focus on LGBTQ+ rights.

It was a broad discussion on the role of culture, the health consequences for LGBTQ+ persons and how training can look in this area. We also talked about how this approach can be used in health research collaborations where nurses and health care workers often play a significant role, and how we can use their findings when working with Horizon Europe and the EU Health Programme.

Our talk about internationalisation and being LGBTQ+ led to Alfonso sharing his own story of growing up gay in Italy and moving to the UK. We hope you all appreciate it.
