Challenges For Patients And Providers In Trans Medicine

Doctor talking to patient.

Practicing medicine with transgender patients presents challenges even to the most open-minded medical professionals. Think about it; it's not just that many medical pros do not see many transgender patients, there's also little official literature from things like clinical trials available to consult.

stef m shuster (they/them, and no capital letters) pulls back the curtain on practices that up 'til now have been shrouded in mystery. shuster's book is Trans Medicine: The Emergence and Practice of Treating Gender.

You'll hear from the author about the complications for trans people, health care providers, and society at large.
