and communication with their doctors?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: University of Rochester
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.
