Human Trafficking: A Public Health Crisis

Human trafficking is a major public health problem, both domestically and internationally. Healthcare 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 healthcare professionals to identify human trafficking victims when they present in the clinical setting. Providers will learn how to appropriately assess victims and clearly know when and how to report cases to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the signs of human trafficking in a clinical setting and recognize the federal and state laws regarding professional reporting.
  • Implement trauma-informed care and provide support and resources while keeping patients safe.
