Healthy Child Programme Model of Practice for Health Visitors

This micro skills course forms the first stage of providing the health visitor profession with a model of practice that you and families can use to guide your work together on the Healthy Child Programme. It will help you to structure and reflect upon your use of the HCP with families. The model of practice will also help to explain your work to other professionals, services and commissioners. This micro skills course covers the universal aspects of the HCP and does not look at practice with families with complex needs where the process of helping people to change is more intensive.
