While more and more cities are offering multi-disciplinary care through gender clinics, most providers and patients across the country still do not have access to these services. This leaves many providers and patients attempting to piece together their care. This presentation will be a discussion with a medical provider and a mental health provider regarding how smaller communities, rural communities and communities without gender clinics can offer patients a circle of care, as well as a discussion on the establishment of relationships among providers. The two presenters will outline how they have created a community based multi-disciplinary group, hospital team, research collaborative, support group and training to other providers.
