iHV promotes raising the standards in health visiting practice through a series of e-learning for health online modules.

We have several e-learning modules developed by ourselves for our Associate members on topics such as:
PMH; Safeguarding; DVA; IMH; Child Safety; Developing Resilience; Healthy Weight, Healthy Nutrition.

Plus other important e-learning available on e-LfH.

Please note these e-learning modules are designed for health visitors who have already undertaken many years’ education and training in nursing and/or midwifery as well as health visiting. They are designed to build on the theoretical underpinning you use in practice whilst refreshing and updating your practice. Other members utilising the resources must do so within their own sphere of practice and within the jurisdiction of their employers vicarious liability. The Institute is not responsible for the application of these resources in practice.
