Check out this great (and short) post over at the Leadership at Work blog about why leaders should lighten up in the face of this grim economy. With grant funds being cut and more hospitals decreasing their support of SANE programs, I whole-heartedly agree with the advice he gives.

The Family Justice Center Alliance is hosting a webinar, September 10th at 9am Pacific: Setting Up a Foundation or 501(c)3 to Support a Family Justice Center (FJC). Although it's going to be talking about the FJC model, that model does include medical-forensic care, and may be particularly useful for programs looking to make a move to a more community-based (or independent nursing service) set up.

I read this blog post over at Huffington Post last week on handling conflict. The post is written within the context of the recent bad behavior at healthcare reform townhalls around the country, but it speaks to the issue generally. I thought the author did a nice job of offering some useful tips and some great real-world examples of strategies people are employing.

I am pleased to announce that the reports from Dr. Rebecca Campbell and colleagues on the criminal justice impact of SANE programs are now available online. You can read the full report here (or read the summary here). There's also a a step-by-step toolkit for evaluating the work of SANEs in the criminal justice system you can view here.
 
Fantastic.

Here's an interesting idea: boomerange recruitment. It's essentially the concept of targeting former employees (high-performing ones) to bring back into the organization. After all, these are people with a proven track record, who know the organization and many (if not all) of its leaders.

OVC is holding a free evaluation overview webinar this Friday, August 21st from 1-5pm ET. Apologies for the late notice, but I just found out about it myself. Preregistration is required. Sadly, I have no other information, but I registered for it this morning.
 
BTW, the site says to register by 8/14--I was able to successfully register anyway. I wouldn't wait too long, though.

For those of you trying to get more SANEs trained, but unable to access a training in your area, or unable to afford to pay for nurses to travel, Duquesne is having an online SANE course beginning September 14th. Cost is $595, but IAFN members get a $50 discount. There are also group rates available. The course is entirely virtual, so there's no requirement to spend any time at Duquesne.
 
You can check out the information about the course here.

I had a reader ask for some basic resources on emergency contraception. Specifically information supporting the argument for using Plan B (a more expensive medication) over Ovral or other combined oral contraceptive pills (which cost pennies). The reader mentioned that from a sustainability perspective, doesn't it make sense to go with the cheaper medication?
