Abstract

his paper is a polemic essay about an important but sometimes controversial subject. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) clients can be reluctant to reveal their sexual orientation to health professionals from whom they may be seeking health care for their children. Family-centred care (FCC), where care is planned around the whole family not just the individual child, is widely used across the world, but unless all aspects of the families who present for care are respected, care delivery is compromised. This is particularly important for minority groups and potentially vulnerable families such as LGBT.
