SGM Competency in Oncology

Research Question:
How do patients with different identifies feel about their experience with stress and communication with their doctors?

Basic Study Information

This study is a single-arm, open-label trial of a sexual and gender minority (SGM) competence training program at Wilmot Cancer Institute (Wilmot) and its regional care locations (e.g., Wilmot Medical Oncology, Wilmot Radiation Oncology, Gynecological Oncology, Highland Hospital, Pluta Cancer Center). Results will be descriptive in nature and will be used to inform a R01 grant application. The investigators will train Wilmot personnel (physicians, nurses, other providers, staff, and administrators) at each care location using a validated, two-hour long SGM curriculum created by the Fenway Institute and tailored for oncology. The investigators will collect data from all personnel on knowledge and attitudes about SGM patients before and after the training. After the training is complete, the investigators will recruit 5 SGM patients and 5 heterosexual/cisgender (H/C) patients from each care location to provide data on their satisfaction with care, outcomes, and experiences.
