How do we manage victims of abuse and advocate for them in front of our peers? Weâ€™ll have abuse victim advocate Kim McCaffery on the show to share her thoughts and important lessons we can all share for these at-risk patients. If that's what you're looking for, you found it, right here on this week's episode of the MedicCast.

The topics she presents include: Media Literacy & Rape Culture, Child Sexual Abuse Prevention, Human Sex Trafficking; Violence Prevention, and Victim Advocacy and Volunteer Training, among others. Throughout her career she has chaired county Coalitions for Violence Prevention and has served as a Director on the Board of the Philadelphia Children's Alliance, the city's accredited Child Advocacy Center.
Kim is an old friend of mine and reached out to me recently to have her on the show to focus on this important topic. While we will just be scratching the surface, this episode will hopefully give you a starting point from which you can seek out other opportunities to follow up and educate yourself with local resources. Hereâ€™s my segment with Kim on abuse victim advocacy and human trafficking.
