Using Virtual Meeting Software for Interviews with Victims

June 23, 2020 — A panel discussion recording is now available from End Violence Against Women International that covers the use of virtual meeting software for interviewing victims.

In this panel presentation and discussion, investigators and a forensic nurse utilizing virtual software to interview victims, witnesses, and suspects discuss the advantages and challenges. They provide tips and talk about pitfalls to avoid.
