Webinar | Healthcare Considerations Related to Human Trafficking
Every day hospitals in America are caring for persons who are affected by both sex and labor trafficking. The East Coast is a major corridor for moving victims in and out of both rural and urban settings, yet rarely are healthcare providers trained to understand the signs of trafficking. As well, screening questions are often ineffective in patient disclosure of trafficking, and worse, if a patient offers a positive response to screening – hospitals may not have developed plans for care and safety of these victim patients.
This presentation offers attendees an opportunity to understand what human trafficking looks like, viable ways to screen to meet JCAHO requirements, exemplary models of community response, and an opportunity for assistance in developing protocols for hospital response.
1. Participants will understand the presenting signs and symptoms seen in trafficked victim patients
2. Participants will understand the definitions of human trafficking.
3. Participants will list community possible resources for referral of victim patients.
4. Participants will discuss options for viable community response.
