Course Overview

Human trafficking is a secretive yet widespread form of slavery in existence today. Trafficking is a problem on a global scale. Many may not realize the widespread scope of trafficking operations that are in force in the United States. It is difficult to obtain accurate numbers as to the scope of trafficking related to the underground or hidden nature of activities. Most victims in the United States are unwilling participants in the sex trade. This webinar provides information about referral resources, tools, assessment data, and reporting to help the healthcare team identify and help victims of human trafficking.
