The incidence of human and sex trafficking in the United States continues to escalate to a multi-billion dollar per year business. The sex trafficking industry remains impartial to gender, age, ethnicity or socioeconomic status. This atrocity continues to occur in every town in the United States.
Nurses serve as a first line of defense, advocate, and potential first contact with sex trafficked victims. This webinar will present statistics of occurrence in the United States, areas of high incidence, signs and behaviors of sex trafficked victims, terminology used by traffickers, and recovery of victims. The speaker will offer suggestions and information on how to incorporate information about sex trafficking into nursing curriculum.
