The purpose of this project is to improve the knowledge and understanding of health care providers in relation to detection, care, and management of the victims of human trafficking. Nineteen health care providers participated in a training module focused on human trafficking and completed a pre- and post-module survey to evaluate results. The training module provided information about human trafficking including background, statistics, patient presentation, response protocols, and resources and guidelines for care of the victim. Pre- and post-training module surveys were completed by each participant to evaluate the efficacy of the training and perceived increase in knowledge and competency relative to recognition and care of human trafficking victims. The results concluded that competency levels of health care providers were significantly improved following the training module. The outcomes of this project emphasize the need and opportunity for improved education of health care providers relative to recognition and care of human trafficking victims in the health care setting.
