2024 HCAM Webinar: Taking a Closer Look at Human Trafficking

*available on-demand after June 6

Human Trafficking is not a new Buzz Word. The state of Michigan has required that all healthcare providers have one hour of education on human trafficking. The goal of this session is to assist the participant to take a closer look at the residents, visitors, and other individuals that you come in contact on a daily basis. Every resident that you come in contact with could be a trafficking victim. So, do you know what to do if you have a trafficking victim in your arena?

Nurse Learner Objective: At the conclusion of this session, participants will self-report a knowledge gain of how to identify, communicate, care plan and report human trafficking in a health care setting.

Learner Objectives:

  1.     Identify victims and warning signs of labor and sex trafficking in the health care setting.
  2.     Communicate effectively with the human trafficking victim.
  3.     Develop plan of care using a a multi-discipline approach in taking care of human trafficking victim.
  4.     Examine resources for reporting suspected victims.

Why Take This Course?

In Michigan, Act 368 of the Public Health Code amended in 2014 (and put in effect in 2015) added a one-time requirement that all healthcare professionals receive one hour of continuing education before license renewal. The continuing education program must focus on the following objectives (per Michigan Administrative Code R. 338.604):

  •     Understanding the types and venues of human trafficking in the United States
  •     Identifying victims of human trafficking in health care settings
  •     Identifying warning signs of human trafficking in health care settings for adults and minors
  •     Resources for reporting the suspected victims of human trafficking

This course meets the requirements for this rule.
