Jennifer Meyer runs Forensic Nursing Services of Providence, in Anchorage, Alaska. In the short period of time she's been there, she's tackled some huge challenges and yet, still has a passion and drive for the work that I really admire. Sharing a meal is always a high point for me when I make my way up there, and I always love to hear about the "visitors" she gets to her clinic:

Sometimes, it's the little stuff that makes our lives easier. Over at Lifehacker, they reported yesterday on a new website that converts documents to other formats--for free, with no need to download anything. CometDocs is a "one of its kinds free online document conversion interface that offers a large set of document conversions that can't be found anywhere else online".

Fieldstone Alliance has a great piece on the keys to collaboration you might find useful. Aside from outlining the 4 areas needed for collaboration, it also has a section on elements of successful collaboration that might be of particular interest. Best of all, as with so many of their resources, it's written concisely, with lots of bullet points for easy digestion. My only beef with their stuff is that they don't offer printable views.

It's a foggy, cold morning here at the Naval Justice School, and I am frankly, exhausted. I've had some fascinating conversations in the last 24 hours with many, many lawyers (both prosecutors and defense counsel, sometimes more than one at a time). One of the threads of our conversations has been balancing, or in some cases, marrying, the forensic with the clinical; making decisions that are patient-centered vs. investigation-centered. Deviating from protocols in favor of processes that make patients more comfortable, more in control.

Good morning from beautiful Newport, RI!

I have known Diane Daiber for some time now, and always enjoy working with her, if for no other reason than her passion for our work is unflagging. Currently the Coordinator of the SANE program at Hilllcrest Hospital in an eastern suburb of Cleveland, OH, she is also the OH IAFN chapter president. Thanks, Diane for agreeing to share some thoughts with us this morning!

I am thrilled to finally have a bit of bandwidth at my disposal now that I am laying over in the Amsterdam airport. So just a quickie for you before my flight boards for Washington--this from our colleagues in the EMS community. EMS Magazine had an article on employee retention in their October 2007 edition (updated in July 2008), and I thought it was interesting how many of their suggestions apply to us, as well.

Sorry everyone, but the internet access I have at my disposal here in Italy is a tad inconsistent. To call it spotty would be optimistic. I have lost 2 posts so far and am throwing in the towel before my laptop becomes a flying projectile, hurled from my 2nd floor window. Assuming my chances for posting don't improve I will be back in the states Thursday evening and promise to catch you up upon my return. Thanks for your patience!

Today marks the 1st in what I hope to be a weekly series here at the Sustainability blog: a Q&A with a coordinator from a well-established program. A little something to inspire and reenergize for our Fridays. I can't imagine kicking off the series with anyone other than my good friend, Jennifer Pierce Weeks, coordinator of the The Forensic Nurse Examiner Program at Memorial Health System in Colorado Springs, CO and current president of IAFN. She inspires and reenergizes me on a regular basis, and more importantly, she keeps me laughing.

I'm teaching a seminar all day today in Chicago so I will be making today's entry a brief one. Before I head out the door, I'd like to introduce you to a document that can be incredibly useful in mapping out collaboration strategies. Many of you, particularly in the advocacy community are already familiar with Collaboration Math, from the Prevention Institute.
