Kardinia Health strives to foster an inclusive, respectful environment for every member of the community, and prides itself on being a community leader in providing support to members of the community who identify as transgender, gender diverse or non-binary. Kardinia Health has worked hard to create an inclusive and positive environment that provides open access and support for people who may have previously encountered barriers to receiving quality healthcare.
To date, no formal studies have been conducted to ascertain how this has been received by TGDNB patients, and in particular what the barriers and facilitators to effective care may be amongst this population.
Hence this study in collaboration with Deakin researchers will provide a more in-depth account of barriers and facilitators to TGDNB health care at Kardinia Health, and what ideal care may look like in a regional or rural setting.
