Rainbow Health Ontario (RHO), a program of Sherbourne Health, developed this seven-module course on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and Two-Spirit (2SLGBTQ) health for healthcare and social service providers. These modules will help build your foundational knowledge for providing care to 2SLGBTQ people.

This course’s goal is to heighten your comfort level and competency in providing high-quality inclusive, affirming, welcoming; culturally sensitive care. In the course you will build your understanding of important 2SLGBTQ terminology. You will also learn to understand the context of minority stress; health disparities faced by 2SLGBTQ people; improve your ability to provide comprehensive care for your service users from diverse 2SLGBTQ communities.

Each module will take about 30 minutes to complete. The module’s activities are designed to inspire critical thinking about the course principles so you can apply your knowledge and skills in your daily practice. Each module will guide you to explore key concepts such as: sex; gender; gender identity; gender expression; intersectionality; mental health and inclusive language.

Sherbourne Health and RHO thank the Online Learning Development Advisory Committee (OLDAC) for working with us to produce this course. The OLDAC team included physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, psychologists, 2SLGBTQ community members—all of whom provided invaluable feedback for the seven modules in this foundations course.


  • This program has been accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Ontario Chapter for up to 3.5 Mainpro-M1 credits.
