What can healthcare providers do to help victims of human trafficking? Many healthcare providers, who interact with human trafficking victims, are unaware that these crimes occur and often are not prepared to respond to victims, survivors, and those at risk. This webinar will provide clinicians with knowledge on trafficking and give specific tools for screening, assist victims in the clinical setting, and understand reporting requirements. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from a human trafficking survivor, and explore opportunities for improving practice and policy.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the background and statistics of human trafficking.

2. Describe ways in which health care providers can identify and assist victims and survivors.

3. Identify screening tools and understand reporting requirements.

4. Understand how programs and services can be designed to be more supportive and avoid re-traumatization.
