About the Course:
Human trafficking has been called a form of modern-day slavery. It is a crime involving the exploitation of someone for the purpose of compelled labor or a commercial sex act through the use of force, fraud, or coercion. Victims can be women or men, adults or children, citizens or noncitizens and occurs across the United States and throughout the world. Human trafficking does not require crossing of international or state borders.

For clinicians and health care workers, human trafficking can be viewed as a serious health risk associated with significant physical and psychological harms.3 The abuses suffered by people who are trafficked include many forms of physical violence or abuse (e.g., beating, burning, rape, confinement) as well as many psychologically damaging tactics such as threats to themselves or their family members, blackmail, extortion, lies about the person’s rights, and confiscation of vital identity documents.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the types and venues of human trafficking in the United States.
  • Be better able to identify victims of human trafficking in health care settings.
  • Recognize the warning signs of human trafficking in health care settings for adults and minors.
  • Identify resources for reporting suspected victims of human trafficking.
