When patients who are experiencing human trafficking present to hospitals for care, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE)/Forensic Nurses, when available, are consulted to provide medical forensic services. National, state, and forensic specific organizations most frequently recommend a Sexual Assault Forensic Examination for patients that have experienced human trafficking, though they often lack the unique medical forensic, cultural, and trauma informed interventions needed to address the challenges seen in survivors of human trafficking. A multidisciplinary group of human trafficking specialists developed a flowsheet for medical forensic evidentiary exams, and then provided the tool to highly trained SANE/Forensic Nurses to help guide consultation to optimize interventions that address the unique challenges and needs of patients who experience human trafficking. Utilizing multidisciplinary human trafficking specialists to modify, enhance, and help vet the tool enriched the effectiveness of the final flowsheet and helped to support the learning needs of the nurses using the tool for consults. The presenter will make recommendations for programs considering replicating this tool to optimize services for these patients.


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • List the unique challenges and medical forensic needs of patients who experience human trafficking.
  • Discuss the key medical forensic gaps addressed by a human trafficking specific medical forensic evidentiary flowsheet, to better serve the needs of this population.
  • Recognize the process utilized to develop a human trafficking specific medical forensic evidentiary flowsheet by a multidisciplinary team.
