Human trafficking (human slavery) is not only seen across the world but also in the United States. Healthcare professionals may be the only people to whom victims have access who can help them escape their captors and move from victimhood to survivor. This course presents risk factors for becoming a victim as well as ways to identify the person in a clinical setting. All health agencies must train staff how to proceed when trafficking is suspected. Screening and assessment tools are included.
