Abstract

Transgender, non-binary and questioning teenagers are increasingly visible. However, they face barriers in accessing appropriate care that meet their needs, both specific and regarding their general health. Primary care physicians increasingly see them in consultations but often lack elements of communication and recent knowledge that is needed to accompany them and their close ones in their individual trajectories. This article aims to answer this need and provides a synthesis about recent evidence and suggested communication approaches for primary care physicians, who play a central role for the health of all patients.
