This manual is a must read if you are involved with efforts to help caregivers examine their ideas and feelings about seeing LGBTQ patients as simply part of the general population and not some special group. Acquaviva shares heartwarming stories of good care along with valuable suggestions for training caregivers to be more inclusive.

Given the history of discrimination against the LGBTQ community, this is a valuable resource.

Acquaviva is a tenured professor at the George Washington University School of Nursing and is a member of Friends Meeting of Washington (D.C.), where she teaches First-day school among other things.
