For those of you who didn't get enough weekend, or maybe ended up seeing patients this weekend (like I did), a little inspiration.

Today's Q&A comes to us from Cindy Jennings, coordinator of the Dayton, OH program. Cindy's been a constant down in the Miami Valley, running one of the older programs in Ohio and she graciously responded to my call for submissions. Thanks, Cindy!

I'd like to give a quick plug for our session at IAFN this year. For those of you attending, we will be doing an all day workshop (PDF) on Saturday, Oct. 24th on program management and leadership development. The workshop will use a mock clinical program case file (given to people in advance) to tackle common issues that develop in the course of running a program.

Last week over at Networking for Good, there was a teleconference on storytelling as an online fundraising technique.

I'm pleased to bring you a new Q&A this week, featuring Stacey Mitchell. Stacey is the immediate past-president of IAFN and a fantastic role model for people looking to push the boundaries of where forensic nursing can go. I like chatting with her because she has a similar perspective on the importance of understanding the business of what we do. Located in the great state of Texas, Stacey's now taken on a considerable challenge in her most recent venture--but I'll let her tell you about it herself:

The Goodman Center, a favorite resource for presentation info, is holding a free webinar July 17th from 9-10 am Pacific, on the results of their national survey on using teleconferences, videoconferences, and webinars instead of in-person meetings and conferences.

Sometimes it's the simple tools that can make a big impact. Take for instance the Decision Selection Matrix (PDF) from Performance Vistas. I talk a lot about prioritizing resources and energy expenditures (particularly for those of you without a lot of compensated hours for running programs), and this is another one of those small things (it's only a page!) that can have a big impact.

Many people are creating their own trainings as a way to add staff and/or maintain team competency. If you're looking to implement your own educational programs (or just want to fine tune the ones you already have running), consider checking out the National Victim Assistance Academy's guide, The Ultimate Educator (OVC) and its fantastic chapter on Adult Learning (PDF).

The International Association of Forensic Nurses is one of the best means of support for SANE program managers and their staff. If you are not yet a member, I really encourage you to join. Access to the SANE listserv, On the Edge, the Journal of Forensic Nursing and other member benefits can provide additional resources for any program. And I couldn't be more happy about the commitment IAFN has made to online continuing education.

Google has created a Google for Nonprofits presentation channel on Youtube that has some great ideas for programs looking to better use the web.
