We’re looking for GPs who would be happy to talk about
providing care to trans and gender diverse people.
No ‘experience’ in caring for trans and gender diverse people? No worries! We still want to hear from you.
Why? Trans and gender diverse people generally experience poorer health outcomes in Aotearoa New Zealand. Many barriers exist that prevent people from receiving - and delivering - quality primary healthcare. We are conducting research that aims to understand the experiences, or lack thereof, of GPs in providing care to trans and gender diverse people. Taking part in this research will provide key information that will contribute to improving primary healthcare for trans and gender diverse people in Aotearoa New Zealand and support you and other GPs in providing this care.
What would be involved? This would involve meeting with the primary researcher on this project (Sandra, a PhD student at Victoria University of Wellington) and talking to her about your experience, or lack thereof, with primary healthcare provision to trans and gender diverse people. As this is about your own experiences/opinions there are no right or wrong answers. No prior experience in providing care for trans and gender diverse people is required. Before we start, I will ask you to provide some demographic information and sign a consent form. The interview should take approximately 30 minutes and will be voice recorded (either in person or via zoom). To acknowledge your contribution, you will receive a $20 voucher.
Are you interested, or would you like to know more? Please contact Sandra Souto Pereira
(Sandra.firstname.lastname@example.org or 027 6406932) or follow this link https://forms.gle/VPZdpgVA4364Bbnf6 I’d love to hear from you!
This research has been approved by the Victoria University of Wellington Human Ethics Committee reference number 0000029589
