Last week, I mentioned social networking (via Facebook) briefly. A lot of nonprofits have embraced social media as a tool for community education/awareness, staff development and more. TechSoup and NTEN have an archived webinar on the topic: Storytelling and Social Media: Building Blocks.

One of the things I would most like to do with this blog site is highlight some of the innovative ideas people have employed to grow/enhance/maintain their SANE programs. Even programs that don't feel like they are on sure-footing have still implemented some fantatsic solutions to help move them down the path toward sustainability.

If you haven't had the opportunity to range around on the Sustainability TA pages of this site, one of the items I'd like to direct your attention to is the list of seminal literature for SANEs and SANE programs. Many of the articles and reports on this list are full-text and available for download.

Vicarious/secondary trauma is one of those issues we sometimes give lip service to, but generally do a lousy job of actually addressing in forensic nursing. But for those of you looking into the eyes of team members and seeing burn out staring back at you, perhaps now is a good time to start exploring (or exploring further) the issue of secondary trauma.

One of the things I do in my spare time (*snicker*) is maintain a forensic healthcare blog. Although it's not connected to any specific project, it has quite a bit of content related to maintaining sexual assault medical forensic exam clinical competency. Mind you, it's not only sexual assault content on that site; you'll find all apsects of clinical forensic healthcare, from program management to interpersonal violence to policy and research.

One of the most confounding issues for SANE program managers is funding. Many nurses, particularly, have very little experience writing grants and raising capital, so knowing where to start can feel overwhelming. Fortunately, there's the Foundation Center. Your starting off point for all things money. Because if you don't know how to do it, where to find it, or how to ask for it, the Foundation Center has you covered.

Welcome everyone to our new blog! The blog will be a regularly updated source for a wide variety of information related to sustaining (and growing) SANE programs, so I hope you will bookmark this page (or add us to your RSS feed) and check back regularly. We will be mining the vast online world of nonprofit and healthcare management, public policy and forensic education information to bring you accessible (and usually free) resources to keep your SANE programs healthy. What will make this site even better, though, is your feedback and participation.
