iHV promotes raising the standards in health visiting practice through a series of e-learning for Healthcare online modules around the Healthy Child Programme (HCP). Please note the iHV does not host the e-LfH site. If you experience any problems accessing the site contact e-LfH.
Accessing the e-learning packages for health is easy through the e-learning for Healthcare portal. You will need to register using your NMC Pin number.
Following thorough research, iHV recommends completing these 8 modules as a core learning package for every health visitor:
- Intro to HCP
- Family Health
- Positive Parenting
- Development and Nutrition
- Speech & Language
- Growth & Nutrition
Additional modules – the iHV recommends completing 2 of these:
- Record Keeping
- Inter-professional Working
Please note these e-learning modules are designed for health visitors who have already undertaken many years of education and training in nursing and/or midwifery as well as health visiting. They are designed to build on the theoretical underpinning that you use in practice, whilst refreshing and updating your practice.
