Informed Consent Model for Gender Affirming Hormone Therapy

Copyright
2021

This website explains the informed consent model of transgender healthcare, which offers a less burdensome experience for patients. It aligns with WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health) standards as a matter of harm reduction, but moves away from the need for a qualified mental health care provider to “verify” someone’s gender dysphoria before starting gender affirming hormone therapy. The focus is on the patient's autonomy, understanding, and care access.
