Identifying Victims of Human Trafficking (P)

Identifying Victims of Human Trafficking (P)

This continuing education program is approved for 1.0 home study credit hour for pharmacists.

Effective Jan. 14, 2015, a new law amending the Michigan Public Health Code (MCL 333.16148) has been put in place that requires all licensed health professionals in the state of Michigan to complete 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 will be required as early as the next renewal cycle following the finalization of the corresponding Board of Pharmacy rule sets. Those who will be renewing their licenses as early as 2017 should be completing this training now to ensure they are in compliance.  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.
