Ascension Providence Hospital Human Trafficking/Pain Management Webinars

In December 2016, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs announced revised Medical Rules. Significant changes to be aware of include:

  • Training standards for identifying victims of human trafficking R 338.2413 – This is a one-time training that is separate from continuing education. Licensees renewing for 2017 must complete training by renewal in 2020; renewals for 2018 by 2021, and renewals for 2019 by 2022. Beginning in 2021, completion of the training is a requirement for initial licensure.
