Abstract

Misgendering occurs when a person is addressed or described using language that does not match their gender identity.1 Misgendering within the health care system can significantly affect the mental and physical health of transgender (hereafter trans) individuals and can negatively impact future engagement with the health care system. Systemic policies and practices create situations which increase the likelihood of misgendering and experience of stigma, affecting the delivery of health care to trans individuals.
