Webinar: LGBTI Older People and Ageing

The ageing population in Australia is dramatically increasing demand for ageing and aged care services.  Older LGBTI Australians have lived through a time in the nation’s history when they suffered stigma, discrimination, pathologisation, criminalisation, family rejection and social exclusion and isolation.

The growing numbers of LGBTI people accessing aged care services represents an emerging and potentially challenging area for aged care service providers.  It is important for those working in aged care to consider the impact of the historical discrimination faced by older LGBTI people and its effect on LGBTI people using aged care services.

This webinar was developed for Primary Health Networks (PHNs) but is suitable for all service providers and health services.
