AHA Webinar: The Reality of Labor Trafficking
Labor trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery in which individuals perform labor or services through the use of force, fraud or coercion. Health care providers and leaders can play an important role in recognizing and responding to human trafficking victims. Greater awareness of human trafficking among providers and other health care professionals enables the health care system to more effectively assess risk among vulnerable patients in the U.S. and can improve victim identification and response. This webinar will provide hospitals and health systems with the tools to identify and respond to potential victims of labor trafficking.
