Human trafficking is one of the largest and most lucrative organized crimes in the world. Consulting a health professional may provide human trafficking victims with a rare opportunity to be in a safe environment where help can be offered. Because of this, the Simulation Summit will host a plenary panel session that will shed light on this important topic and raise awareness within the health care community.

In addition to hearing testimonials from human trafficking survivors, this panel will feature professionals from health care, education and law enforcement. Together, they will share best practices on

  •  identifying and advocating for victims of human trafficking;
  • taking proactive steps to intervene and providing quality care that accounts for safety, confidentiality and consent;
  • creating an open environment and offering resources that will support victims who choose to seek help.
