While nearly 90% of human trafficking survivors report having contact with healthcare providers while being trafficked, physicians and healthcare staff. have a low index of suspicion and low confidence in identifying trafficking victims. To effectively intervene on behalf of this group of patients, providers must possess a functional understanding of clinical presentations, risk factors, screening tools, and trauma-informed care. This activity lays out these essentials of knowledge and competencies for systems-based practice.
