Goldfarb School of Nursing, Medical Campus

During this conference you 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 healthcare 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.

Local experts on EMS, adult, and pediatric traffic victim care with 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.
