Focus On: Human Trafficking

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security defines human trafficking as “the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act.” While there are many misconceptions, it’s important to remember that human trafficking can occur in any community to any person of any age, race, gender, or nationality. Nurses are on the front lines of health care and we have a responsibility to stay informed on this global issue so that we can recognize victims, collaborate with law enforcement and other professionals, and ensure safe and effective care.
