OVC is hosting a web forum November 4th from 2-3pm ET: Serving Elder Abuse Victims in Indian Country. You can submit questions in advance and then return to the site on the 4th for some real-time discussion. If you can’t make it, all the answers will be archived and available for review at a later date.
Medscape’s One Question Blog posted a new question the other day: have you, as a nurse, been assaulted and/or threatened by a family member either physically or mentally? If so, please share your experiences. How did you handle the situation immediately? Lock the workplace? How did those in charge in your setting handle your situation?
Sorry for the lack of wrap-up last week–things were fairly hectic and the Sustainability site got a bit neglected. We’re back this week, though, and you’ll find some good stuff there:
- A reminder to check up on the continuing conversation over at the OVC web forum. While I still have yet to hear back from colleagues on a couple questions I put out there for more nuanced feedback, I have been able to get to the majority of posted questions.
- A great piece on leadership and being an energizer for your team
- A webcast of Dr. Rebecca Campbell speaking about the impact of SANE programs on the criminal justice system. There are 4 videos altogether.
Today’s a call day for me, and I’m stuck in my windowless office at the DOVE Program. But that may be okay, because it is a cold and rainy day here in the CLE. Hope it’s a bit more hospitable wherever you are…
Much of the content on the sustainability site this week was pretty self-centered, I must say. But hopefully it’s useful, so, if you’ll indulge me:
- The slides from the session I did at NSAC on sustainability are posted here under Conference Handouts (click here to go to them directly). They’ll be available for 30 days (after that, by request).
- I’ll be hosting a web forum on sustainability for OVC Sept. 30th from 2-3pm
- A fantastic (and relatively brief) tool for managers of all stripes: a guide to effective communication that has some great recommendations for delivering bad news, holding meetings that don’t waste people’s times, and much more.
I’m off to the wilds of Colorado this weekend and will be working from there most of next week. I’ll try and keep posts pretty regular, assuming my connectivity is reasonable. Have a great weekend!
OVC has another free web forum coming up August 26th from 2-3pm ET: Responding to Homeless Victims of Sexual Assault. No registration is required.

Just a head’s up: I’m facilitating one of these at the end of September on program sustainability. I’ll post more on it when I have the official details.
On July 22nd, from 2-3pm ET, OVC will be hosting a web forum on addressing sexual violence against individuals with disabilities.

Witness Justice & Trainingforums.org have just announced a new web forum on domestic violence and faith-based communities, specifically the African-American community. The forum is being facilitated by Dr. Aleese Moore-Orbih from the Faith Trust Institute. “This forum will highlight some of the common, complex and culturally specific contributors to violence against African American women. It will address the role of faith as a resource and a roadblock and offer concrete ways in which faith communities can respond to and support abused women and their children in the African American Community.”
