Learn more about the role health care providers can play in identifying victims of human trafficking in an upcoming free continuing medical education program. SLMMS will partner with the League of Healthcare Experts and the Missouri Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives to present a free virtual educational program, “Human Trafficking and the Impact on Healthcare”, on Thursday, November 12, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Human trafficking is a major public health problem, both domestically and internationally. Often healthcare providers are the only professionals to interact with trafficking victims who are still in captivity. The expert assessment and interview skills of providers greatly contribute to their readiness to identify victims of trafficking. This program aims to provide clinicians with knowledge and the specific tools they may need to assist victims in the clinical setting.
Nicole Ensminger, the human trafficking response program manager with Ascension Via Christi Health, Inc. of Wichita, Kans., will be the speaker, and will also moderate a panel of trained providers in the identification and recognition of human trafficking victims. The panelists will include:
- Ricky Goins, Protective Security Advisor, United States Department of Homeland Security
- Cindy Malott, Director of Advocacy Services, Crisis Aid International
- Jennifer Schrag, Director, Social Work Services, Truman Medical Centers, Inc.
The free program is open to all SLMMS members and their staff members and will be offered via Zoom. Pre-registration is required. Registration is being conducted through the Missouri Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (MO-ACHE). Click HERE to register.
