Réseau de soins pour patients souffrant de dysphorie de genre

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2016, vol. 12, no. 531, p. 1557-1560
Abstract Gender dysphoria refers to the distress caused by the discrepancy between a person's gender identity and his or her sex assignment at birth. It can be alleviated by specialized multidisciplinary care, which is summarized in this article.Unfortunately, this disorder is still not widely known in the medical world and this can cause a discriminatory attitude on the part of caregivers and can lead to detrimental patient care.Faced with this finding and the complaints of some patients, we have decided to create a care network which includes healthcare professionals from various disciplines. The professionals in this network aim to improve the quality of care for patients with gender dysphoria and to create a leading care network in French-speaking Switzerland.
