This module will look at the issues in screening for the LGBTQ+ population. This group consistently has a lower attendance for cancer screening. Having discussions about screening and how non-attendance can be followed up is covered, along with best practice for the cervical smear process in trans men and non-binary people with a cervix. Information is provided on who needs to be screened, to ensure appropriate cancer screening is achieved in the trans population. The need for STI screening is also highlighted.

An educational grant was received from the Government Equalities Office for the production of the course. Editorial and content decisions were made solely by the RCGP.
