Ongoing professional development is recommended for GP's and other professionals working with gender diverse populations. The Australian and New Zealand Association for Transgender Health (ANZPATH) is a great professional organisation to join for ongoing training and connection with other professionals working in the gender diverse community. 

 

Other useful information can be found in the  World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) Standards of Care document.
