24-7 EMS Online: Human Trafficking: An EMS Perspective (V2)

List Price: $5.95
Product Code: EMS1135

Human trafficking is a widespread and diverse issue impacting a variety of vulnerable individuals and communities. EMS providers may come into contact with human trafficking victims as an unintended consequence of a medical emergency. Consequently, they may be a direct line to help for someone who has been trafficked. EMS providers can also offer unconditional support and empathy to victims of trafficking, who may feel mistrustful of law enforcement or first responders, serving as a bridge to other services and safety.

This course reviews what human trafficking is, its pervasiveness, and what EMS providers can do to recognize and respond to human trafficking.
