Time / Duration
30 minutes
Subject matter expert
e-Learning for Healthcare

This session, along with Part 2 (Healthy Child Programme Basics/Leadership, Monitoring and Quality: Part 2), aims to consider the main issues for health visitors when leading the Healthy Child Programme.

It will, however, be of interest to others delivering different aspects of the programme.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Describe the range of leadership and professional skills, attributes and approaches you need to manage a caseload, lead a team and lead the HCP for a population

  • Compare and contrast the contexts you will need to work in and the professionals you will need to work with to lead the programme and be clear on individual professional responsibilities

All must play their part in ensuring that the health visitor is supported to deliver a high quality programme for their local children and families.

The session is specifically aimed at helping health visitors to consider the different elements of their responsibilities with respect to leading the Healthy Child Programme (HCP) whilst leading a mixed-skill team and delivering aspects of the programme. The session includes a number of exercises to promote learning and reflection, and leads directly onto a second session: Healthy Child Programme Basics/Leadership, Monitoring and Quality: Part 2.
