In Australia and elsewhere there is an increasing need for gender‐affirming hormone therapy in the medical management of transgender and gender diverse (TGD) people. Estimates suggest that 0.1–2.0% of the population are TGD in Australia, but medical education addressing this issue has been sparse to date. Recommendations for the hormonal and related management of adult TGD individuals have recently been published in the Medical Journal of Australia. Aspects addressed include a suggested gender‐affirming hormone therapy algorithm, and recommended the baseline investigations. Read the guidelines in the MJA here.
