HEALTHCARE PROVIDER EDUCATION AND RESOURCES

Healthcare professionals receive virtually no training in the care of patients/clients involved in kink, and there is almost no medical literature describing the population or its needs. Because of this, even a sympathetic clinician may have difficulty providing appropriate care to a patient who risks disclosure.
