19th June 2020
Did you miss our 2nd iHV Insights webinar on “Domestic Violence and Abuse: Keeping victims and children safe during a pandemic” that was held yesterday?
We were joined by a fabulous panel of experts who were able to provide an update on the evidence and lots of helpful tips on supporting families experiencing domestic violence and abuse when face-to-face contacts are limited.
The great news is that all the iHV Insights webinars will be available for iHV members to access as a free member benefit after the event.
Click here to catch up on our 2 fabulous iHV Insights sessions so far:
- 21 May 2020 – COVID-19 in children and managing minor childhood illnesses
- 18 June 2020 – “Domestic Violence and Abuse: Keeping victims and children safe during a pandemic” (please note: there was a minor very short technical break in recording during this session in a transition between speakers)
Over time we hope that this library of iHV Insights will grow into a valuable “bite-sized” CPD resource for all members to use as part of your ongoing learning and revalidation.
What are iHV Insights and what do they cover?
All iHV Insights focus on current priorities for health visitors in their role supporting children and families achieve the best start in life. Currently, we are focusing on the impact of COVID-19 and how we respond to the challenges that we face. COVID-19 has also shone a spotlight on the specialist skills of health visitors and your ability to drive change and innovation despite these challenges – these iHV Insights webinars provide an opportunity to share best practice and learn from others.
The 1-hour sessions are led by leading experts in their field who share the latest evidence and their experiences of practice. They also include a live Q&A session which provide an opportunity for you to have your questions answered.
If you are unable to join the live event, after the event, you can access the:
- Recording of the live iHV Insights webinar
- The webinar slides
- Responses to the Q&A session – key themes to unanswered questions provided by our expert panel (we aim to publish these within 1 week of the event)
The sessions will be of interest to frontline health visitors and student health visitors, as well as service leads, commissioners and wider members of the health visiting team, both in the UK and with lots of transferable learning for our international members too.
