Jalali, S., Levi, M., and Tang, N. (2015). Prehospital Emergency Care Training Practices Regarding Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Patients in Maryland (USA). (Abstract only.) Prehospital Disaster Medicine. 30(2):163-166.
The authors surveyed EMS education program directors across the state of Maryland about cultural sensitivity training in their programs. Of the 16 sixteen programs that completed the survey, 38% were educating trainees on LGBTQ+ cultural considerations, and 75% would be willing to include information on these communities in their curricula. The authors suggest similar studies and further research on EMS curricula should be done in across the U.S.
