Join us for this interdisciplinary virtual event that will focus on improving the understanding of the sexual health needs of patients with differences of sex development (DSDs, also called intersex conditions), particularly as they are affected by genital surgery. 

This webinar is designed for healthcare providers and other professionals involved in the medical and surgical care of patients with intersex traits or DSD. Participants will learn the specificity and significance of the nuanced vocabulary used to describe DSDs. They will be empowered with the knowledge and vocabulary to counsel and advocate effectively for patients with DSDs and their families, in both clinical and broader social contexts, as they consider the potential risks/benefits of genital surgery for DSDs. And finally, they will be assisted in grappling with the ethical and medicolegal challenges inherent in the surgical modification of the genitalia of younger patients.

Objectives of the event include:

  • To learn historical and updated vocabulary and terminology used to discuss variance of sex, gender, and genitalia
  • To describe the history of surgical care provided to patients with differences of sex development (DSDs), its technical progress and limitations 
  • To understand the medicolegal and bioethical challenges that accompany the surgical treatment of children and adolescent minors with DSDs 

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered delegates up to 60 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
