ABOUT THE WORKSHEETS:

These worksheets have been designed to support student health visitors in their development as a Health Visitor and to assess their ability to apply theory taught in the University and by their Practice Teacher/Mentor into Practice.

 

EACH OF THE WORKSHEETS REFLECT THE SCPHN PRINCIPLES:

  1. Surveillance and assessment of the population’s health and well-being

  2. Collaborative working for health and well-being

  3. Working with, and for, communities to improve health and well-being

  9. Strategic leadership for health and well-being

10. Ethically managing self, people and resources to improve health and well-being.

 

Under each of the Principles are a number of Proficiencies totalling 24 in all. Each of the worksheets are designed to assist Practice Teachers to assess  student health visitor competence in each proficiency.

 

Practice Teachers and Mentors will have the answer sheets with answers to the quizzes and suggestive responses to some of the other questions.

 

We hope that students will enjoy undertaking these worksheets and that they will assist them in their development as a safe, competent and effective health visitor.
