Development of a Patient-Reported Outcome Measure for Gender-Affirming Treatments (GENDER-Q). Hormone treatment and gender-affirming surgery provided to transgender and gender diverse people can dramatically change how the face, body and genitals look and function. Our team is participating in an international multiphase program of research to develop a patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) for gender-affirming treatments (GENDER-Q). This work is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
