iHV SCPHN Student Awards – enter today!

30th May 2023


We are very excited about our new award open to specialist community public health nursing (SCPHN) health visitor students who are iHV members. This is an award linked with the annual iHV Evidence-based Practice Conference.

To make a submission students are invited to prepare a 350-word abstract showcasing an innovation in practice. Please note, to simplify the application process, posters are no longer required as part of the submission – the winning entry will be invited to give a short oral presentation (using slides if preferred) at our EBP conference in September.

Each Higher Education Institution (HEI) providing the SCPHN education programme is invited to submit a maximum of 2 submissions, depending on the size of their existing SCPHN HV cohorts. Each student submission would need to be supported by an academic and practice assessor or supervisor

The award has been developed to celebrate new talent joining the health visitor workforce and showcase new ideas for service provision. Details of the award can be found here and on the flyer below. To discuss ideas please contact: [email protected]
