Some added benefits of being an ally to people who are LGBTQ+ in healthcare include greater patient retention, improved treatment adherence and compliance, and increased patient satisfaction. And everyone knows that good news spreads fast. Satisfied patients are more likely to recommend your practice to their friends and family.
