Methods: Thirty-three pediatric (66%) and 17 adult (34%) T1DX-QI centers that serve patients from less than one year old to 99 years old completed a survey about their LGBTQ+ supportive and inclusive care practices in mid-2022. Significance testing was conducted using Fisher’s exact test.
Results: Most pediatric (88%) and adult (76%) centers reported gender-affirming care was legal in their state. Almost 90% of pediatric and adult centers document patients’ self-identified gender identity, but more pediatric (82%) than adult (65%) document pronouns used by patients with diabetes. A majority of pediatric and adult centers (97% and 82%, respectively) document sex assigned at birth (SAAB), but less than half of the institutions (39% pediatric and 24% adult) change SAAB in their electronic health record. Only 44% of pediatric and 47% of adult centers document sexual orientation, but 64% of pediatric and 53% of adult centers have implemented strategies to support asking about gender identity and sexual orientation within their clinics. The results for documented patient self-identified gender identity, and documented pronouns were both significant, with p-values less than 0.05.
