Providing Trauma-Informed Care to Victims and Survivors of Human Trafficking Facilitates a Sustainable Healthcare Ecosystem
Faculty and trainees within the Department of Medicine who are involved in the care of patients need to receive regular updates on recent advances and guidelines in the field of internal medicine. Clinical scenarios will be used to review the current management of common medical conditions, including chronic pain and opioid abuse. Multidisciplinary sessions will be also used to educate learners about human trafficking and the role of physicians in identifying and assisting victims in the community. The overall aim of the series is to advance clinical knowledge, enhance the quality of patient care, and improve treatment outcomes.
Physicians, medical students, fellows, and residents.
At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:
Recognize how primary care and family and internal medicine residency clinics can advance health equity by integrating trauma-informed care into treatment modalities for human trafficking victims.
Integrate trauma-informed care into residency programs and associated hospital policies and practices.
Demonstrate greater understanding of how a sustainable healthcare ecosystem can advance health equity and create safe clinical spaces for victims of human trafficking.
