iHV podcasts: iHV SCPHN Student HV Award Winners share their incredible new ideas

3rd November 2023

iHV SCPHN Student Health Visitor Award winners 2023 speak with Amanda Holland, iHV Professional Services Lead, on their incredible new ideas for service provision

In March 2023, iHV announced a new award open to Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN) health visitor students who are iHV members. The award was developed to celebrate new talent joining the health visitor workforce and to showcase new ideas for service provision. Students and Higher Education Institutions, who provide SCPHN education programmes, were invited to submit to the iHV Student Award 2023, and all submissions were of a very high quality. The winners of the iHV Student Award 2023 were announced in August – read more here.

In this short series of podcasts Amanda Holland, iHV Professional Services Lead, talks with 2023 award winners Leonie Grundy, Claire Black and Robin Williams.

We are delighted to share their amazing work and look forward to hearing their progress as newly qualified health visitor. We are also thrilled that Leonie and Claire are now co-chairs of the iHV SCPHN Student Health Visitor Networking Events. See here for more details.

Leonie Grundy shares how she led activities to film a series of evidence-based safe sleep demonstrations for use on social media, within antenatal classes, and safe sleep training.

Claire Black discusses how she worked collaboratively with other professionals to meet the nutritional needs and food preferences of Afghan families.
Please note – in this podcast, the term ‘weaning’ is used and refers to complementary feeding. These terms continue to be used interchangeably, however, we recognise ‘complementary feeding’ as the preferred term in accordance with WHO.
