Hi all - please feel free to place questions in the Q&A box or in the chat box. We'll have time for Q&A at the end, and will come to questions after all the speakers :)

The Cancer Institute NSW has provided a partnership grant to ACON to improve screening participation in national screening programs. We are very interested in extending this to LGBTI CALD communities.

Data is important. But it is equally important that your service provides an inclusive service regardless whether you know if your client is Lgbtiq or not. For example, do not assume a woman has a husband, have gender neutral bathrooms, ask people which pronouns they use; do not assume when a woman is using a health service she is pregnant; ask people where they want to be housed Both in terms of the suburb and in terms of the gender of people sharing the dwelling with them. These are just few basic things

Kathryn, sex recorded at birth, gender that a person identifies now. Use the language of partners to make sure that your patient feels included

Such a fantastic point Henrietta!
