We are really excited to be delivering iHV’s 6th Evidence-based practice conference, “Looking ahead to a fairer future”, a 2-day virtual conference being held on 21 and 22 September 2021.
Our conference programme brings together local, national and international speakers focused on sharing best practice examples and research to improve health visiting practice. This conference will provide a much-needed time of reflection and learning from the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on babies, young children and their families, and the services that support them. In particular, the conference will focus on reducing inequalities and this will be explored through a variety of different practice-related topics. What have we learnt from the pandemic? And how can we focus our efforts as we look ahead to the future with a shared ambition to build a fairer society?
Health visitors provide a vital safety-net for all families which is essential if we are serious about reducing inequalities.
