Event description

Description

The overarching goal of the clinical encounter is not rescue or patient disclosure but rather, improving health and safety. As mandated reporters, what are some of the ethical dilemmas faced by health professionals when identifying and providing care to trafficked persons? Applying the bioethical principles of respect for autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence, and justice, this lecture, led by Fidelma Rigby, MD, considers the ethics of care model as a trauma-informed framework for providing health care to human trafficking victims and survivors.
