In this engagement event we present the early findings from an exciting research study undertaken at the University of Birmingham. We know from previous projects that there are two principal problems:

  • Uncertainty among the general student population in providing appropriate support for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Queer (LGBTQ) people using their services;
  • Specific concerns among LGBTQ students about disclosure of sexuality while on practice placement.

Multiple methods were used to investigate these problems and to identify best practice examples across a range of disciplines.

The event is open to anyone interested in this topic.
