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.

This course fulfills the requirement for training in human trafficking for nurses and other healthcare professionals in Michigan.

If you suspect that any child or adult is a victim, or is at risk of becoming a victim, call 855 444 3911 any time, day or night. If the individual is in imminent danger, immediately call 911.

Criteria for Successful Completion
