Course description 400,000 people in the United States are trapped in modern slavery situations related to sex and labor trafficking. Many of these victims receive healthcare services while under a traffickers’ control. In fact, medical practitioners are often among the few professionals to have contact with trafficked persons outside of their daily exploitive situations. Developing the knowledge and skills to assess and interview potential victims in a medical setting is critical to saving lives. This course is delivered in two modules. Through stories and interactive scenarios, this course will teach clinicians and other medical staff how to spot the signs of human trafficking and safe ways to take action on behalf of victims.
