I am thrilled to announce the availability of two new publications from the SANE Sustainability TA project: Creating a Business Plan for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners, and Fostering Collaboration Between SANE Program Coordinators and Medical Directors.

This week is the IAFN Annual Assembly, so I will be in Atlanta through next weekend. Posting will be light, but please check in over at the Forensic Health site for updates from the conference.
 
In the meantime, here's a story from Friday's Kansas Free Press you might find interesting (thanks, Kim!).

The Chronicle of Philanthropy hosted an online discussion yesterday on using Facebook Causes to promote nonprofits. Sadly, I just heard about it this morning, so I couldn't attend. But it's archived on their site and available for viewing (it's transcripts of the session, not video). For those of you toying with this approach to fundraising, it's worth checking out.

Because so many of us are slogging through long hours and huge case loads, particularly in this economic climate, I thought this piece from Rosabeth Moss Kanter over at the Voices blog (Harvard Business Publishing) would be particularly relevant. In her post, she discusses the 3 characteristics that make someone an energizer.

We've talked about rehiring quality SANEs who've left the program as one effective recruitment tool in a previous post, but there's a great Conversation Starter this week that touches on the same topic. Keep in mind, it was written for the business world, but the principles are still applicable...

Its only 9:15 am and I have already fielded two questions this morning on SANE/SART funding, so I am going to take that as a sign from the blogging gods and get a post up on finding funders.

NIJ has video available of Dr. Rebecca Campbell speaking at one of their symposiums on her research regarding SANE programs and their impact on the criminal justice system. This discussion is broken up into four segments:

The conversation over at the OVC web forum on sustainability has been terrific. I'm still working on responses to all of the questions, but you can see everything that's been posted here. Just scroll down to "Sustainability of Victim Services"--you'll see the hot topics button next to it!

Did you know that the Foundation Center now has a librarian available to chat with you in real time as you tackle grant writing and fundraising issues? It's a great resource for those of us with immediate gratification issues (e.g. when emailing that question just doesn't get a quick enough response).
 
Keep in mind that there probably won't be anyone available for live chat at 11:30 the night before your grant is due, so plan accordingly:)

The SAFE TA project is hosting a free webinar on victim privacy October 13th from 2-3:30 ET. Susan Chasson, an IAFN past president and practicing SANE, and Jessica Mindlin, an attorney from the Victim Rights Law Center and NSVRC advisory board member, will be the featured presenters.
 
You can find all the info at the Forensic Health site, where I posted session and registration details this morning.
