This course will seek to inform the rehabilitative professional about individuals who identify in ways other than cis-gender, including appropriate language to use, gender pronouns, and definitions specific to this population. The course will additionally discuss physical therapy implications for these individuals, including the impact of hormone therapy on the musculoskeletal system and post operative considerations following gender affirmation surgery. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
