Wavelength’s values & mission
Making LGBTIQ medical education accessible
Our courses are freely available anytime, anywhere! We have a number of resources readily available through our learning system that covers the basic aspects of LGBTIQ health every health professional should know. Best of all, it’s free of charge!
Improving the experience of LBGTIQ patients and clients
LGBTIQ patients often report having to educate health professionals on their health needs and clinical care. By improving knowledge and clinical skills, we hope to get a step closer to achieving equality in healthcare.
Respecting diversity of cultures, experiences and sexualities
We understand the LGBTIQ is a broad and diverse community. Our resources aim to improve patient care by celebrating diversity within diversity!
Our LGBTIQ medical courses
You have free access to our four main courses: Terminology, Gender, Sexuality and Intersex. Besides from our Terminology course, each course includes a lecture explaining basic healthcare needs and a number of clinical scenarios modelling best practice. You’ll have access to quizzes and resources at the end of each course.
Not too sure what LGBTIQ stands for? Our short course on terminology breaks down the rainbow acronym and provides a solid foundation for understanding gender, sexuality and intersex.
The trans and gender diverse community has a broad range of unique health needs. Learn about inclusive practice, including discussing a patient’s pronouns, affirmation history, cultural diversity and sexual health. Lectures delivered by Dr Ruth McNair and Dr Gavi Ansara.
A patient’s sexuality has an impact beyond just their sexual health. Learn about discussing safer sex, mental health, HIV risk and alcohol and other drugs. Lectures delivered by Dr Ruth McNair.
In this brief course, we’ll introduce bodily diversity and de-stigmatising intersex variations. Lecture delivered by Dr Gavi Ansara.
