Human Trafficking has been declared a public health crisis and the statistics of persons in trafficking is rising across the United States. Health care providers are in a unique position to report and assist survivors. Medical professionals are the first line of defense in combating the largest social justice issue of our times. Nurses are one of the few populations that connect with victims while they are still under the control of their trafficker. Identifying the signs of commercial sexual exploitation and reporting suspected human trafficking can lead to the potential recovery of countless lives.
Human Trafficking a Personal View is an ANCC approved course taught by a sex trafficking survivor and subject matter expert that is designated to equip healthcare providers with the classified information that is exclusive to the profession. Tara Madison uses parts of her story pertaining to past interactions with medical professionals while she was trafficked, to help pinpoint missed signs and indicators.
