Medical Safe Zone Facilitator Training
October 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Center is facing increasing requests to provide Safe Zones for Medical audiences. In response to this need, we have created a Medical Safe Zone, with a curriculum that covers LGBTQ health disparities, medical resources, and common health professional scenarios, along with a terminology primer and strategies for allyship. We are looking for individuals knowledgeable on health care to join our Medical Facilitation Team.
Similar to the Standard Safe Zone Training, Medical Safe Zone Facilitator Training is a four-hour training that covers best practices for facilitating group discussions, presenting information, and dealing with difficult questions and topics. It will also go over the curriculum for the Medical Safe Zone. Once individuals complete Medical Safe Zone Facilitator Training, they can start co-facilitating Medical Safe Zones organized by and alongside of LGBTQ Center Staff.
Prerequisites for Medical Facilitator Training:
- Status as an employee or student within UNC or the UNC Health Care system.
- Completion of Safe Zone training (4-hour foundational training).
