Content: Most interventions that support individuals seeking gender affirmative treatment focus on preparing the patient for the surgery. However, what are the health care needs after completion of these interventions? Should the provision of care continue beyond the surgical treatment phase? Iris de Brouwer, a medical student, and Tim van de Grift, a psychiatrist from the Netherlands, view aftercare as pivotal to good treatment outcomes. In this talk, they present new findings from the ENIGI Multicenter European Follow-Up Study*. Their research group collected data from 260 individuals who received GAS in 3 large European clinics. Following the format of why, how, what questions, the speakers discuss why aftercare is important, how they studied the needs of transgender people post-surgery, what the most critical findings are, and how these could change clinical practice. The speakers explain the most frequently mentioned aftercare needs and how these are associated with surgery satisfaction and psychological symptoms. From the transgender individuals’ perspectives, the speakers discuss four domains regarding aftercare optimization and the predictive factors of aftercare needs. Our speakers discuss their findings and explain how these call for a different clinical approach to gender-affirming surgery, one that expands beyond the surgery to include aftercare.
