New Australian Standards of Care and Treatment Guidelines

Australian Standards of Care and Treatments for Trans and Gender Diverse Children and Adolescents now available in PDF Form : Link

From the Introduction:

The Australian Standards of Care and Treatment Guidelines (ASOCTG) aim to maximise quality care
provision to trans and gender diverse children and adolescents across Australia, whilst recognising the
unique circumstances of providing such care to this population. Recommendations are made based
on available empirical evidence and clinician consensus, and have been developed in consultation with
professionals working with the trans and gender diverse population across Australia and New Zealand
from multiple disciplines, trans and gender diverse support organisations, as well as trans children
and adolescents and their families. They have been endorsed by the Australian and New Zealand
Professional Association for Transgender Health (ANZPATH), the peak organisation in the region
actively promoting communication and collaboration amongst professionals of all disciplines involved
in the healthcare, rights and wellbeing of people who identify as trans or gender diverse.
