Neonatal Families (Phase 1) – Funded by The Tiny Lives Trust
The Tiny Lives Trust and iHV together identified a need for specific knowledge and training for health visitors to equip them to support families of preterm and sick babies who had been on neonatal units. This project aimed to provide the evidence and knowledge to health visitors, enabling them to work effectively with families and provide tailored family-centred support.
Training and resources were developed via an Ambassadors programme, including:
- A survey of North East health visitors’ knowledge and confidence in working with neonatal families
- Development of resources to support practice, including e-learning and cascade training materials
- Training program to equip health visitors to be Neonatal Family Ambassadors
- Ambassadors equipped to disseminate their learning and the resources to the wider health visiting community in the North East.
This training is now developed as a full day training session. If you are interested, please contact [email protected] to find out more about having this training in your area.
