Inside this Issue

Vol. 30, No. 2, April/May 2024

Beyond Boundaries: Unraveling the Ethical Challenges of Coordinated Transgender Health Care for Adults CEU

By Chikita Mann, MSN, RN, CCM
Lack of knowledge by health care professionals is a major barrier to transgendered individuals seeking care. Such individuals experience higher rates of sexually transmitted diseases, substance use, and psychiatric disorders. The author delves into ethical considerations inherent in the care of transgender clients, emphasizing the need for sensitivity, respect, and cultural competence.

Addressing Social Determinants of Health: Are We There Yet? CEU

By Rebecca Perez, MSN, RN, CCM
Social determinants of health are defined by WHO as “the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age.” The author discusses initiatives by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid, called the Accountable Health Communities Model, which lays the groundwork for collecting data about 6 social determinates of health: living situation, state living space, food availability, transportation, utilities, and safety. The author describes the difficulty and importance of health care entities to incorporate this data into their systems.

Understanding Clinical Trials: Part 1 CEU

By Gary Wolfe, RN, CCM, FCM
The author takes the reader on a historical journey of clinical trials back to biblical times. He also explains the purpose of clinical trials, the questions they are seeking to answer, how the protocols are developed, and the unfortunate exclusion of certain groups from the research. Part 2 will appear in the June/July issue.
