    Course Description
    The human trafficking of men, women, adolescents, and children for sexual activity, forced labor, and organ harvesting has become one of the world’s most pressing social and health dilemmas of the 21st century. A leading cause of violence, trauma, and abuse, human trafficking is associated with a wide range of medical and behavioral consequences. Although a large percentage of victims seek treatment for their conditions, the majority are not identified by those who care for them because many healthcare practitioners are unaware of the characteristic signs and symptoms. Through education and institutional support, healthcare providers can more effectively use targeted tools for identifying, assessing, and managing these patients. Working cooperatively with social service agencies, patient advocates, law enforcement officials, and immigration authorities, healthcare professionals can better meet the needs of trafficking survivors by delivering compassionate, culturally sensitive, and trauma-centered care. In so doing, practitioners can help victims regain their basic human rights, autonomy, sense of safety, and ability to act in their own best interest.

    Learning Objectives
    After completing this course, the participant should be able to:

    • SUMMARIZE the ways in which human trafficking has become a global public-health concern grounded in the abridgement of victims’ civil and human rights.
    • DISTINGUISH between the definitions and types of human trafficking and key risk factors for exploitation.
    • EXPLAIN the health consequences of human trafficking and the role of healthcare professionals in addressing victims’ needs.
    • EVALUATE the guiding principles of assessment and the importance of delivering culturally sensitive, trauma-informed care.
    • IDENTIFY the recommended and required means of documentation and disclosure to protect the health and safety of trafficked victims.
