Abstract

Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community have historically faced prejudices, often resulting in significant health disparities. Critical care nurses have a duty to provide all patients, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, with the best possible care. This article examines a framework for LGBTQ-sensitive care as well as best practices and additional resources.
