Actions to support LGBTI elders - A guide for aged care providers 

Lilliana Levada, Nurse Education Consultant
The LGBTI community has a decade-long history of coming together to resist stigmatizing and marginalizing influences, and older adults in this population may remain cautious about disclosing their sexual orientation. Many felt unsafe revealing their sexual orientation until relatively recently, and may still not be “out” to medical providers. When accessing health care services, many LGBTI adults may thus anticipate discriminatory or even condemnatory treatment.

Lilliana Levada, Nurse Education Consultant
The Perioperative environment functions in a highly uncertain clinical and operational manner; workloads fluctuate due to daily variability in surgical cases and patients’ diverse and rapidly changing conditions. Variability challenges managers’ ability to predict and optimize nurse staffing to maintain safe and efficient care. An understaffed perioperative department may compromise patient safety, create operating room delays or surgical cancellations, and result in nurse burnout.
