Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

A correlational study determined if personal contact with transgender individuals and the amount of transgender-specific education are correlated with OT students’ and practitioners’ attitudes and knowledge of transgender communities. Results indicate that contact and hours of education have a significant association with knowledge. Research into factors that relate to preparedness in working with transgender clients is a step toward addressing transgender health disparities.
