Join this meeting that will explore the assessment and treatment of adolescents presenting with gender dysphoria, with evidence for intervention with medical hormonal therapy. We aim to highlight potential issues for clinicians looking after adolescents and future clinical consequences for adults who have undergone early treatment as an adolescent. Also, learn the ethics and legality of treating children.
This meeting is aimed at medical clinicians to discuss the use of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists (more commonly known as hormone or puberty blockers) in transgender adolescents. The early use of blockers has been suggested as reversible but as treatment of this group increases, issues and challenges regarding fertility preservation and the effects of future gender reassignment surgery, cognitive and bone health have been highlighted.
This meeting will provide a balanced and informed discussion of the current practice affecting medical practitioners from urology, gynaecology, endocrinology and psychiatry looking after adolescents with gender incongruence.
