As part of a research project through the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), Wisconsin physicians currently practicing in OBGYN, Family Medicine or Emergency Medicine/Urgent Care are being asked to complete an online survey to help assess and improve physicians’ knowledge of human trafficking in Wisconsin. Physicians are known to be under-educated in human trafficking, although they play a pivotal role in ending this global crime. Wisconsin physicians are not required by law to have specific training in human trafficking, thus the survey will provide physicians with the opportunity to learn more about human trafficking, how to identify patients who may be victims of human trafficking and will provide them with the opportunity to take an online training course for Continuing Medical Education credit.
Please consider taking 10-15 minutes to complete this survey, which consists of a quick self-assessment/pre-quiz, a short educational article and the same self-assessment/post-quiz.
Participation as an MCW research advocate is voluntary and there will be no penalty or loss of benefits for not participating or skipping questions. This is an anonymized study and there are adequate provisions in place to maintain privacy. Gloria Halverson, MD, OBYGN, professor emeritus at MCW, President of Christian Medical and Dental Association and Human Trafficking Activist/Expert, has ensured that all the information provided in this study is correct and up to date. Dr. Halverson has led multiple mission trips to work with human trafficking victims, has written curriculum for students and health care professionals regarding human trafficking and has won multiple awards for her work in human trafficking – including from the Wisconsin Medical Society. The PI of this study, Katrina Rosculet, MD, MA, is a board-certified MD in Radiology, an adjunct assistant professor in the Physicians in the Community Pathways course at MCW and has educational expertise in Bioethics.
