Transgender populations experience disproportionate social and health disparities that can negatively impact quality of life. Healthcare barriers due to gender based discrimination and lack of medical insurance and culturally competent providers contribute to low levels of access to preventative health care screenings, resulting in sub-optimal health outcomes. The unique health circumstances of transgender individuals have been understudied in the literature. As a result clinicians are often under-informed of their specific health maintenance needs and screening guidelines. To help address this disparity, a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) student at the University of San Francisco facilitated the collaborative assessment, development, implementation and evaluation of a transgender health screening/health maintenance resource bundle at a federally funded community health center in San Francisco, California. The project met its objectives in increasing health provider knowledge regarding transgender health maintenance and in demonstrating its usefulness to the clinic.
