We are completing the second installment of a new series with the help of Katherine Thompson from IPV Educators. The discussion continues on human trafficking but this time we talk about how we can help.
Similar to our last post, we are only listing some of the key highlights here in this post. Make sure to listen to the podcast for the details.
Maintain a victim centered approach:
Screening tools can be beneficial, but they need to be used correctly. Ken Milne from The Skeptic's Guide to Emergency Medicine (SGEM #237) covered a screening tool specifically on child sex trafficking that is worth reviewing.
We also briefly discussed a previous blog and podcast (Podcast #74) about child abuse and neglect. This ties in well with the content we review here. Hopefully, we can add to this discussion in a future post.
Below is a PDF with great information that outlines quite a bit of details that can be beneficial for those working in healthcare settings and the issues surrounding human trafficking.
Recognizing and Responding to Human Trafficking in a Healthcare Context
National Human Trafficking Hotline: https://humantraffickinghotline.org/ has many great resources and they offer a variety of resources and information including shoe cards.
