VIO-011: Development of a Strategic, Coordinated Response of Health Care Professionals to Sex Trafficking Victims
Development of a Strategic, Coordinated Response of Health Care Professionals to Sex Trafficking Victims: The Wisconsin Medical Society believes that health care professionals should be trained in the recognition and response to human trafficking victims, and:
- Encourages medical facilities to make such training available to employees.
- Encourages appropriate entities to compile a repository of educational materials, screening tools and community resources for health care providers to use when human trafficking victims are identified in the medical setting.
- Supports efforts by health care professionals and health care facilities to develop a coordinated response to human trafficking victims, in collaboration with local law enforcement, child protective services and community-based advocates. (HOD, 0415)
