In this episode of the Healthy, Wealthy, and Smart Podcast, we delve into making physical therapy clinics more inclusive for everyone, including the LGBT+ community. Our guest, Dr. Michelle Stauffer, a dedicated advocate for LGBT+ healthcare and a member of the APTA PT Proud Special Interest Group, shares her insights and experiences.

Dr. Stauffer discusses her journey into physical therapy, influenced by her athletic injuries and her identity as a member of the LGBT+ community. She highlights the importance of creating a safe and welcoming environment in healthcare settings, especially for those who often face discrimination and misunderstanding.

We explore practical steps to assess and enhance the inclusivity of a physical therapy clinic, starting from the exterior accessibility and moving inside to the waiting areas, treatment spaces, and restrooms. Dr. Stauffer emphasizes the significance of details such as inclusive signage, diverse representation in clinic decor, and thoughtful amenities that cater to a wide range of needs.

Additionally, we touch on the importance of inclusive paperwork and intake forms that respect all identities by allowing patients to specify their preferred names and pronouns. Dr. Stauffer also suggests resources for continuous learning and improvement in DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) practices, encouraging clinic owners and therapists to seek education and adapt to better serve their communities actively.

This episode is packed with actionable advice for healthcare professionals who want to foster an inclusive atmosphere in their practices and ensure that all patients feel respected, safe, and valued.
