Wow – what an amazing and packed day we had yesterday at the iHV Evidence-based Practice Conference 2019: Health for All Children Now. Sold out a few weeks ago, we had a full house – 300 people including delegates, exhibitors and speakers!

Held on Thursday 9 May 2019 at King’s House Conference Centre, Manchester, it was the must-attend event in 2019 for those interested in evidence-based infant and family public health and health visiting to come together to hear the latest guidance and recommendations included in the newly-published fifth edition of Health for All Children.

With 4 concurrent sessions running during the morning and another 4 concurrent sessions in the afternoon, in addition to the morning and afternoon plenary sessions, there was plenty for the delegates to listen to and learn about.
