It is a sad truth that cases of human trafficking are on the rise in many parts of the country. Airline employees and health care professionals have been lauded in the news lately for rescuing young victims. That is because those professions are in a unique position to be able to recognize and assist victims and get them to safety.
As a nurse, you have a calling to care for the sick and injured. But do you know what signs to look for, and how to handle this potentially dangerous situation?
Taught by human trafficking survivor Tara Madison, Human Trafficking, a Personal View is a continuing education one-hour webinar for nurses that focuses on how:
“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.”
During the course, Madison reviews mis-steps and lost opportunities when she herself could have been rescued. This webinar will arm you with the information you need to help pull someone out of a life of slavery. It is well worth the time of any health car provider that interacts with the public.
The course is offered by Elite CE and is approved by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
