Bookings now open for our virtual Evidence-based practice conference!

7th August 2020

We’re thrilled to announce that our annual Evidence-based Practice Conference “Creating Healthy Children, COVID and beyond”, originally scheduled to take place in May, will be held as a virtual conference – and bookings are now open!

Creating Healthy Children, COVID and beyond will be taking place online on the following days and times:

  • Tuesday 22 September –  08:45 – 14:00
  • Wednesday 23 September –  08:45 – 14:00

We are absolutely delighted to be presenting our fourth evidence-based practice conference for health visitors and those who work with them, and our first online conference. These are challenging times but we didn’t want you to lose out on all the wonderful content we had pulled together for our conference in May.

You will have access not only to national speakers, but to a raft of great poster presentations, a conference exhibition, and networking opportunities and more throughout the day.

We know that one of the challenges of watching things online is maintaining concentration, so the programme has been designed to help you to stay engaged with a full one-day programme spread over two days.

  • Professor Viv Bennett, Chief Nurse and Director Maternity and Early Years, Public Health England
