" Addressing Human Trafficking in Healthcare Settings"

Continuing Educational Opportunity 

Human trafficking is a public health concern that affects individuals, families, and entire communities across generations, according to the Administration for Children and Families, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  Because health care providers are in a unique position to identify victims and provide them with physical and psychological care—while in captivity and after release—policymakers are looking at how the health care system not only can serve victims but help solve the trafficking problem.

Program Objectives:

  1. Identify the types and venues of human trafficking in the United States
  2. Describe potential warning signs that a victim of human trafficking might exhibit
  3. Describe screening questions and tools that might be useful to identify victims of human trafficking within the healthcare setting
  4. Recognize the legal options available for a victim of human trafficking
  5. Describe the need for comprehensive models of care for victims of human trafficking
