BOOK TODAY – Evidence-based Practice Conference in Manchester!

23rd May 2022

We are very excited to officially launch our 7th iHV evidence-based practice (EBP) conference, “Together | Fairer | Stronger”, which is being held on Thursday 15 September 2022 at King’s House Conference Centre in Manchester.

We are pleased to announce that this will be our first face-to-face conference since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are all looking forward to being able to meet again, network and share ideas together.

The theme of this year’s conference is reducing health inequalities, whilst promoting health visiting and strengthening its role in tackling current public health priorities, and improving outcomes for babies, children, and families.

Programme & Speakers

Our conference programme brings together local, national, and international experts and speakers who are focused on strengthening health visiting practice through sharing the latest evidence, research, and practice examples. The presentations and workshops will reflect the breadth of health visiting practice, within a “whole system” public health approach, to equip health visitors to address key challenges in prevention and earliest intervention work with babies, children, and families.

“We look forward to welcoming you to Manchester in September 2022 to explore the latest evidence-based practice and research on key public health priorities for health visiting. Everyone is welcome as we come together again, in person, to share best practice and research – let’s build on the present to help shape the future of health visiting and tackle inequalities. We look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible.”
