Beginning Jan. 14, 2015, a new law amending the Michigan Public Health Code (MCL 333.16148) went into effect that requires all licensed health professionals in the state of Michigan to complete a one-time training related to identifying victims of human trafficking. This law was passed recognizing that health professionals, including pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, may be more likely to encounter a potential victim of human trafficking while delivering patient care than the average worker or citizen of the state. For current pharmacist and pharmacy technician licensees, this means that completion of a training program for identifying victims of human trafficking is required. MPA has developed this qualified training program to assist pharmacists and pharmacy technicians with compliance. You will receive an e-mail upon completion to maintain for your records.
NOTE: Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians only need to complete this training one time only. It is not necessary to complete this training every licensure renewal period.
Target Audience: Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians
Pharmacists should complete the home study titled Identifying Victims of Human Trafficking (P)
