Detecting and Responding to Human Trafficking

Miami, FL US
October 18, 2017

Human trafficking is a major public health problem, both domestically and internationally. Health care providers are often the only professionals to interact with trafficking victims who are still in captivity. Recent studies have demonstrated that up to 50% of trafficking victims in the United States were seen by healthcare professionals while in captivity and were not identified.  This course will help guide health care professionals to identify human trafficking victims when they present in the clinical setting.  Attendees will learn how to appropriately assess victims and clearly know when and how to report cases to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
