4th July 2024

Healthier Beginnings

Call for Abstracts

Want to be part of our fantastic conference next year?

Call for abstracts for iHV Evidence-based Practice Conference 2025 is now open!

Submit your abstract for our iHV Evidence-based Practice conference “Healthier Beginnings” which will be held at King’s House Conference Centre in Manchester on Thursday 8 May 2025.

With a new government and changes in nurse leadership across many UK nations, we are entering a new era for child and family health in the UK. With change, there is also opportunity – and as a profession, health visitors across the UK will be leading our profession into the future. We believe in the power of health visiting innovation, research, and evidence-based practices to create a brighter, healthier future for all babies, children and families – and the impact that we have is magnified when we come together and learn from each other.

Be part of our conference platform in 2025 – join local, national, and international experts and speakers and share your cutting-edge developments in health visiting practice, innovation and the latest research to address health inequalities and improve health outcomes for babies, children and families.

What are the benefits of presenting at the iHV conference?

It’s an excellent opportunity for you to:

  • Raise your own profile as a speaker at a UK-wide conference
  • Raise the profile of your organisation and showcase your work
  • Connect, collaborate and learn from other practitioners working in the field of health visiting and family public health
  • Add your experience of presenting to your CV and boost your career

Top-scoring abstract authors have the chance to present their work as a concurrent session speaker, or even a plenary talk in the main auditorium (you can indicate your preferences – allocation will depend on scoring and topic selection).

What are the presentation opportunities?

  • A short oral breakout session presentation
  • An oral concurrent presentation
  • A plenary keynote presentation

Abstract timeline:

  • Submissions: The abstract submission deadline is 7 October 2024.
  • Notifications: After an iHV peer-review process, participants will be informed of acceptance of abstracts for either oral keynote/concurrent presentation, or an oral breakout presentation, by 24 October 2024.

We look forward to reading your abstracts and hearing about your practice innovations and research! Any questions – please email [email protected].
