Description

Dentistry is well positioned to recognize the signs of individuals that are trapped in dangerous situations. Abuse, neglect, domestic violence and human trafficking surround us in today’s society and leave clear indicators that - if we are properly trained to recognize them - can be detected. All too often an individual is crying for help and it goes unheard.

Dental professionals are in a front-line capacity to prevent serious mental and physical consequences…perhaps even save a person’s life. This CE webinar will highlight some of the key warning signs of abuse, neglect, maltreatment and human trafficking. Resources will be given for the most appropriate avenues for aiding these individuals.

Objectives

On completiong of this course the learner will be able to:
• Recognize the most common indicators of abuse, neglect, domestic violence, and human trafficking
• Understand the legal and ethical responsibilities involved in reporting and referring victims
