Human trafficking, or modern-day slavery, is a growing problem.  And no community is immune from it. As nurses, we have a duty to be knowledgeable regarding trauma informed care to victims of human trafficking.  Learn how to identify risk factors, associated healthcare issues, comprehensive assessment and documentation, as well as the legalities involved.  Actual patient case studies will be discussed to highlight some of the ways that nurses can intervene for these victims.
