January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month: Course shows health care providers how to address issue

January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month, a timely reminder for health care professionals to become better educated on the warning signs and what to do if this crime suspected.

Human Trafficking – Training For Healthcare Providers is a CME course designed for UC Davis Health colleagues who would like to learn more about human trafficking.

This compelling course includes first-hand patient experience and assists learners to describe trauma-informed care, identify red flags and/or risk factors for human trafficking, learn conversation starters to discuss human trafficking with patients, and provide resources when trafficking is suspected.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education offers this training in partnership with Emergency Medicine physicians Bryn Mumma and Julia Magana, and Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences physician Rachel Robitz.

This course and additional continuing medical education on a variety of other important topics is available on-demand to UC Davis Health professionals through the UC Learning Center and is certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit (TM).
