CONFERENCE INFORMATION

Informing Multidisciplinary Practice Through Virtual Learning

Join your AFN Colleagues at Virtual Boot Camp this October!

Vulnerable patients who are being trafficked by sex, labor and possible organ harvesting are being cared for in hospitals and healthcare settings worldwide.  Healthcare providers are often not aware of these crimes within their communities and lack comfort and knowledge in addressing the safety and referral of these patients for care and recovery.

This five session boot camp will ensure that Forensic Nurses and healthcare providers improve awareness and become familiar with screening techniques to identify patients being trafficked for sex, labor, organ harvesting and all forms of trafficking.  Participants will be able to recognize symptoms of trafficking, create effective community response systems, and develop trauma informed models of care for trafficked patients.

This LIVE Web Series will launch on October 19, 2021 and features five interactive web sessions through November 16, 2021 (see dates and session descriptions below).

PLEASE REGISTER ON ZOOM WITH A PERSONAL EMAIL TO ENSURE THAT YOU RECIEVE YOUR LOGIN INFORMATION.
