Stop Child Trafficking in Your Community: Become an ACT Advocate

This life-saving, innovative workshop and leadership opportunity is specifically developed for pediatric focused NPs to learn about child trafficking, methods of identification and referral and, most importantly, prevention. There are more people enslaved in labor and/or sex trafficking than at any point in history, meaning children of all socio-economic profiles are at risk with some populations more vulnerable than others. Alliance for Children in Trafficking (ACT) Advocates will receive a certificate of recognition as a trained expert who will then be able to deliver this unique content to healthcare professionals and lay people in your community.

This continuing education activity is administered by the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) as an Agency providing continuing education credit. Individuals who complete this program and earn a 70% or higher score on the post test will be awarded 2.0 NAPNAP contact hours, of which 0 is pharmacology.
