The health care professions take pride in the philosophy that all persons receive equal treatment. Yet prejudice, fears, and stereotyping are so deeply ingrained in our society that discrimination is widespread. Gay, lesbian, and bisexual persons are often harassed, mistreated, or misunderstood in our health care systems. This book explores how prejudices have become institutionalized and offers viable solutions for real change. Essential for educators, students, nurses, health care professionals, community activists, and all those interested in combating prejudice.
