In Michigan, Act 368 of the Public Health Code amended in 2014 (and put in effect in 2015) added a one-time requirement that all healthcare professionals receive one hour of continuing education before license renewal. The continuing education program must focus on the following objectives (per Michigan Administrative Code R. 338.604):
Understanding the types and venues of human trafficking in the United States
Identifying victims of human trafficking in health care settings
Identifying warning signs of human trafficking in health care settings for adults and minors
Resources for reporting the suspected victims of human trafficking
Continuing Education Module
If you are a healthcare provider with a state requirement or interest in learning more about human trafficking, you can take the University of Michigan Human Trafficking Collaborative continuing education module.
