Safe Connections Toowoomba: Evaluating Lifeline Awareness Raising Workshops for Caring Professionals Seeking to Connecting and Supporting LGBTQIA+ Communities
07 MAR 2023
10.00 AM - 11.30 AM

This thesis by publication proposal seeks to evaluate the effectiveness of a series of three (3) Lifeline developed and delivered workshops for caring professionals who provide care to LGBTQIA+ persons in the Toowoomba region. Caring professionals' knowledge, attitudes, and practices/behaviours (KAP/B) will be evaluated through mixed-methods pre- and post-workshop surveys, and survey questions will relate to gender, sexuality, and variations in sex characteristics; discrimination and marginalisation experienced by LGBTQIA+ persons, and domestic, family, and intimate partner violence experienced by LGBTQIA+ persons. It is intended that through the series of awareness raising Lifeline training that caring professionals' knowledge of, attitudes around, and practices (both personally and professionally) towards LGBTQIA+ persons will positively influence the care they provide to LGBTQIA+ persons in the Toowoomba region, thus providing a more inclusive, supportive, and affirming space for LGBTQIA+ persons in their care.
