Earlier this year, HVeCOP set up a team of iHV Fellows who are all expert and innovative practitioners in their specialist fields as a presence on HveCOP, and who are linked to the 6 High Impact Topic Areas closest to their specialism.
HVeCOP has great pleasure in introducing you to one of our Champions – Lizzie Tinsley!
Lizzie Tinsley trained as a Children’s Nurse at DeMontfort University and qualified in 2003.
She went on to work in Children’s Cardiac and Respiratory, NICU and PICU before moving to health visiting in 2007 and completing her training in 2009. In 2014 she decided to return to clinical practice and has been working in Children’s A&E whilst continuing part time in health visiting.
The cross over between the two roles is immense and she directly deals with the impact of parents having not been given good advice in the community which can lead to self-care and avoidance of A&E attendance.
Lizzie became a Fellow of the Institute of Health Visiting in 2014 and very much feels her expertise lies in the prevention of hospital admissions and assisting in keeping health visitors up-to-date with skills and knowledge that they can pass to their families within the community.
These are the skills that she brings to HVeCOP. This is where she supports critical analysis and discursive debate related to issues and current practice posted in the Minor Illnesses topic area of the evidence hub, and posting links to current publications and other resources related to her specialism.
We know from the feedback you have given HVeCOP about the type of online community you value, that Lizzie is providing exactly the support you have requested.
If you have current practice you would like to share in a discussion with Lizzie and other HVeCOP users then post it on the HVeCOP Minor Illnesses Topic Area under Current Practice.
