Welcome to the iHV resources webpage to support our Evidence-based Practice Conference, Hope for the Future, taking place in Manchester on 21 September 2023.

You will have reached this resources webpage by accessing the QR code printed in your conference programme.

At this year’s conference, printing will be kept to a minimum – in line with our commitment to reduce our environmental impact.

To support your continuous professional development after the conference, we have collated a list of iHV resources that are relevant to the topics presented today. iHV members have full access to all iHV resources. Non-members have access to ‘open access’ resources only.

Join the iHV today:
Enjoy all the benefits of full iHV membership by joining the UK’s most rapidly growing organisation for health visiting today.

The iHV is a charity and operates exclusively for charitable purposes. Through the generosity of our members, the iHV is able to be an independent and influential voice, working to improve health outcomes for babies, children and families in the UK through a strengthened health visiting service.

If you join the iHV as a member, your membership contribution will help us to use our independent, authoritative voice to raise the profile of health visiting and improve health and care for all long into the future. Join us today.

Thank you for all that you do to support us!
