Sexual Orientation and Practices History

Description

In this vignette, a clinician takes a sexual history of a patient inclusive of the patient's sexual orientation, sexual attraction, and sexual behaviors. This vignette is part of a clinical vignette series highlighting various aspects of the health of LGBT and gender nonconforming populations and is designed to give learners the opportunity to analyze clinician-patient communication strategies. The series can be used in a variety of ways from independent learning to small group learning to large group learning. Each clip is generally 3-5 minutes long with discussion questions and additional resources listed at the end of each scenario. In an ideal setting the learner would be able to practice the communication strategies identified after viewing the vignettes. Actors: Clinician - Michelle M. Forcier, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Assistant Dean for Admissions, Division of Adolescent Medicine, The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University; Madison (Patient) - Danya Potter.
