This session follows Part 1 (Healthy Child Programme Basics/Leadership, Monitoring and Quality: Part 1), and aims to primarily 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 accountability and delegation challenges related to leading the HCP
  • Utilise a framework to guide delegation and decision making in specific contexts
  • Utilise the policy, organisational, evidence base and legal context to influence leadership and delivery of the HCP
  • Assess your performance against quality indicators
  • Identify and make a plan to develop the skills you need to lead the HCP

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 specific elements of their responsibilities with respect to leading the Healthy Child Programme (HCP). The session includes a number of exercises to promote learning and reflection. By completion of this session, the learner will have been able to identify their specific learning needs.
