SAFEta Source is hosting a free webinar on SANE program peer review that is a must for anyone running a program. Particularly if you are struggling with how best to set up a peer review process or have not yet considered the benefits of peer review. The webinar will be held June 22nd at 2pm ET. Advanced registration is required to attend.
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.
The Nonprofit Risk Management Center has announced their 2010 webinar schedule. There's some interesting stuff on the list. If you're looking at risk management issues in your own program, you might want to consider the expenditure ($59) to attend one of their offerings. Some of the ones that caught my eye include:
The SAFE TA project is hosting a free webinar on victim privacy October 13th from 2-3:30 ET. Susan Chasson, an IAFN past president and practicing SANE, and Jessica Mindlin, an attorney from the Victim Rights Law Center and NSVRC advisory board member, will be the featured presenters.
You can find all the info at the Forensic Health site, where I posted session and registration details this morning.
Just a reminder that we still have a handful of spots available for the leadership and management workshop we will be doing at IAFN in Atlanta this year. The workshop will be all day on Saturday, Oct. 24th. If you have any interest in attending, please register soon. Among the topics we will be covering:
I'm excited to announce that I will be hosting a web forum on sustainability for OVC on September 30th from 2-3pm ET. The session is free and doesn't require advanced registration. You can find information on how to participate here. And for those of you who aren't available to participate live, there are opportunities to submit your questions in advance--everything is archived for later review.
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.
For those of you who will be attending the IAFN Annual Scientific Assembly, please note that we will be doing a full-day workshop on Saturday, October 24th for program managers (for some reason, they titled it NSVRC Leadership, which doesn't provide much info). The goal of the workshop is to provide program managers with tools and resources to more efficiently and effectively run sustainable clinical programs.
Over at the Forensic Healthcare site, Jennifer Pierce Weeks, current IAFN president, has a great guest post on evaluating SANE trainers. If you are responsible for finding someone to train your staff or are contemplating hosting a training in the future, Jen has some great tips on what to consider to make sure you get quality training without necessarily bankrupting your program in the process.
