Supporting Transgender and Non-Binary People with Disabilities or Illnesses
A Good Practice Guide for Health and Care Provision
by Jennie Kermode
By drawing on the experience of trans people who are affected by physical disability, chronic illness and mental illness, this book provides best practice in approaches to health and care policy.
Suggesting solutions to areas where understanding and care provision is poor, Kermode gives advice on topics such as transitioning with a disability, sex-specific service provision and fertility and reproduction. The book also examines how health and care professionals can adapt to cater for transgender and non-binary people's needs and can support those who must use health services due to their condition.
Written in an accessible and comprehensive manner, Supporting Transgender and Non-Binary People with Disabilities or Illnesses is an essential guide for practitioners in health and social care positions.
