2016 NSAPS: Panel 10 - Collaboration to Improve SA Response

The panel showcased how a multi-disciplinary team addressed a large number of previously un-submitted sexual assault kits in a victim-centered, trauma-informed way.

The symposium focused on how the nation is moving forward and finding solutions to the complex issues that arise in sexual assault cases and in testing sexual assault evidence.  This webinar was recorded in its entirety at the time of the live event in order to capture the one-on-one interaction with the presenter.
