Based on the iHV’s Perinatal Mental Health training, these e-learning modules  help health visitors to update their knowledge and skills.

Please note these 3 e-learning modules are designed for health visitors who have already undertaken many years of education and training in nursing and/or midwifery as well as health visiting. They are designed to build on the theoretical underpinning that you use in practice, whilst refreshing and updating your practice.

Other members utilising the resources must do so within their own sphere of practice and within the jurisdiction of their employer’s vicarious liability. The Institute is not responsible for the application of these resources in practice.
