Program Description

Ohio is the 4th in the nation for the number of human trafficking cases reported through the National Trafficking Hotline. The issue is a major public health problem due to the alarming rates of physical and emotional trauma experienced by its victims. According to research conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, healthcare providers are often the only professionals to interact with trafficking victims who are still in captivity. How should healthcare professionals respond to this crisis? Human Trafficking 101 for Healthcare Providers will equip listeners with a foundational understanding of what human trafficking is, who it impacts, and how to appropriately respond to suspected cases. Together we will unpack how to identify and care for those impacted by human trafficking through available resources and evidence-based practice.
