In this vignette a clinician offers a patient advice on achieving sexual satisfaction and provides counseling on how to communicate sexual needs to their partner. 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.
