Human trafficking is a major public health problem, both domestically and internationally. Healthcare providers are often the only professionals to interact with trafficking victims who are still in captivity. Recent studies have demonstrated that up to 50% of trafficking victims in the United States were seen by healthcare professionals while in captivity and were not identified. This course will help guide healthcare professionals to identify human trafficking victims when they present in the clinical setting. 

This course meets continuing education requirements for the Florida Boards of Medicine, Osteopathic Medicine, Podiatry, and Dentistry, Florida Council of Physician Assistants and Florida Council of Dietetics and Nutrition. This activity has also been approved for Nursing, Respiratory Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Pharmacy, in accordance with Florida's Human Trafficking Bill, Section 456.0641, Florida Statutes. The course may be included in the total general hours required and must be completed by January 1, 2021.

Learning Objectives:
• Identify victims of human trafficking – including sex trafficking and labor trafficking – who present in the clinical setting.
• Differentiate victims of human trafficking from other crimes such as domestic abuse, intimate partner violence and sexual assault.
• Conduct an appropriate medical assessment of trafficking victims. 
• Identify when to report cases of human trafficking, and appropriately report to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
