About

Health Visiting (Specialist Community Public Health Nursing) is a CPD programme for registered nurses offered by London South Bank University.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Health Visiting consists of developing, leading and managing activities that aim to promote health and social well-being, prevent health breakdown and ameliorate ill health through working with individuals, families, groups and communities. 

Through partnership working, health visitors seek to enable clients to take control of their lives whilst protecting vulnerable members of society. Public health work that promotes social inclusion and reduces inequalities in health is central to health visiting practice.

The Health Visiting (Specialist Community Public Health Nursing) course from London South Bank University  focuses on promoting the health of children, families and groups in a community setting. 

It considers the issues involved in safeguarding the health of vulnerable children, families and populations. 

The overall aim is to develop an effective practitioner who is able to identify actual and potential health needs, stimulate an awareness of health needs, facilitate evidence based health enhancing activities and influence policy at all levels.
