Clinical Mentorship Call

Trans Care BC’s clinical support initiative is a weekly, virtual lunch-hour meeting for providers who are supporting Two-Spirit, trans, and gender diverse people.

Trans Care BC's Clinical Mentorship Call is held every Thursday from 12:10 -1:00 p.m. (Pacific Time). If you would like to be involved, please email trans.edu@phsa.ca to be included on our distribution list. Meeting minutes will be made available to all members.

Participants are encouraged to bring questions, scenarios, and share from their clinical experience. Mentors will share from their experience, support discussion, and answer questions.

Rotating Themes:

  • Medical care (i.e. primary care, gynecological care, surgery, hormones)
  • Child, youth, and family care
  • Psychosocial care
  • Readiness assessment
  • Special topics (i.e. ethics, legal, intersecting identities and experiences, peer and community supports, etc.)
