The world of human trafficking, also known as modern-day slavery, reaches to our doorstep, whether that door is in a gritty urban area or sparsely populated rural area. Human trafficking is not just a human rights and criminal justice issue, it is a global public health and nursing issue. As nurses, we have probably seen trafficking victims and survivors seeking treatment during their time of exploitation but might not have recognized the signs and symptoms. Or, we might have looked away—not wanting to get involved. We might not have known what to do even if we did recognize the silent cries for help being told by the person’s body.

Nurses have an important but often unrealized role in the identification and rescue of human trafficking victims. After completing this learning activity, you will be better prepared to recognize the signs of human trafficking, to listen and ask the right questions, and to provide local and federal resources to help an individual find safety.
