Abstract

Human trafficking is a significant women's health issue in the United States. Clinicians who provide care to women are often unaware of the signs and symptoms of human trafficking and are unprepared to provide appropriate care. Nurses represent one of the few agents of change that women may encounter while they are in captivity; this places nurses at the forefront of their care. To provide safe and effective care, nurses can use the ABCD treatment model, which stands for assessment, buy-in, case management, and diversion programming. Any gaps between recognition of women's health care needs and the provision of appropriate care must be closed. Integrating evidence-based human trafficking education and skill building into nursing curricula, standard nursing orientation, and continuing education are essential steps to help nurses transform care and advocate on behalf of those who have been trafficked.
