During this conference, health care professionals and students will become familiar with the various types of human trafficking: sex, labor and organ trafficking. Along with clinical signs and symptoms most often requiring a health care encounter. Coupled with the clinical aspects, Trauma Informed Care (TIC) concepts, techniques and rationales will be discussed.

The keynote speaker is Hanni Stoklosa, MD, MPH. Dr. Stoklosa is the Executive Director of the Health, Education, Advocacy and Linkage (HEAL) Network and is an emergency physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital with appointments at Harvard Medical School, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative.

Local experts on EMS, adult and pediatric traffic victim care, in collaboration with law enforcement, will discuss and describe evidence-based response and safe care and discharge planning. The afternoon session will provide simulations of trafficking patient encounters that will enable the participant to acquire clinical knowledge, skills and attitudes that have been developed by HEAL’s collaborative workgroup on competencies necessary to providing care that is patient focused on achieving safe and quality of life outcome.

CEs are available - refer to fee structure as applicable.
