SAFEta Source is hosting a free webinar on SANE program peer review that is a must for anyone running a program.

Advanced registration is required to attend.
NNEDV has a new bulletin, Privacy Concerns When Posting Content Online that's worth perusing. Particularly for those of you using social media sites like Facebook, I think it's a good common sense overview. I think it's a great one-pager to provide new staff members, since it's critical for SANEs to consider what they post and how it can impact them professionally.
For those of you struggling with writing government grants, the Office of Justice Programs has a tutorial that can make the process easier. You'll find everything you need at their Grants 101 site. Best of all, much of the information is applicable to grantwriting in general, particularly in the proposal writing section. And there's a Toolkit with sample documents and other resources, as well.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and as a way to capture what SANEs and other forensic clinicians are doing to commemorate the month (including the Day of Action on April 20th), we've got a little giveaway over at FHO. One random reader will win a $50 Amazon.com gift card for responding to our question, so come check it out!
One of the issues we've heard repeatedly in this project is the challenges staff and contract SANEs feel in communicating with their managers and agency administrators. Not feeling like they have a voice and not feeling like their concerns are being addressed has led to problems with retaining good quality, competent nurses.
First off, apologies for the paucity of posts as of late. I am smack in the middle of a 12 city/8 week tour of the US (because March and April are incredibly busy training months), and I simply haven't been able to keep up. This week is relatively quiet with only an overnighter for me tonight, so I hope to get more content up than I have over the past 2 weeks.
I am very excited to be working with Dr. Rebecca Campbell and her colleagues at Michigan State University on a new research grant that will assist SANE programs in evaluating their impact on criminal justice outcomes. SANE programs who would like to participate in this project are encouraged to apply. You can find all of the details here.
