Bookings now open for our Evidence-based Practice conference 2020!

20th January 2020

Creating Healthy Children, 2020 and beyond

12 and 13 May 2020, Manchester

Due to popular demand, our evidence-based practice conference in May 2020 is now two days! And bookings are now open!

Our conference programme brings together local, national and international speakers focused on sharing best practice examples and research to improve health visiting practice for babies, children and families. The presentations and workshops will reflect the breadth of health visiting practice and service development reflected primarily in the 15 High Impact Areas and 8 Key Principles set out in our recently published “Vision for the Future”.

The conference will also coincide with the 2020 anniversary celebrations of Florence Nightingale’s birth and we are keen to incorporate advances in public health nursing in recognition of Florence’s founding role in this field of nursing.

Being held in Manchester, this conference will provide you with the latest guidance and recommendations relating to infant and family public health from leading professionals and experts!
