    New paper proposing 8-stage model of Domestic Homicide

    New paper proposing 8-stage model of Domestic Homicide

    Jen and Amy are back in the first of a series of five brand new episodes!

    In this first episode we are looking at a proposed new 8-stage model of domestic abuse published earlier this year by Dr Jane Monckton-Smith of Gloucester University. Dr Monckton-Smith has produced an excellent summary video explaining the 8 stages if you would like to see her talking through the model - link is below.

    We talk about the utility of this model in practice, compare it with other tools we are currently seeing, including the DASH, and also discuss the portrayal of intimate partner violence in UK media and how this may impact on perpetrator and victims as well as us professionals.

    As ever we would love to hear from you, email us at iamahealthvisitor@gmail.com

    Thank-you and we hope you enjoy this new series!
    Amy and Jen

    ERIC Potty Training and Constipation

    ERIC Potty Training and Constipation

    The lovely Alina joins us from ERIC - the children's wee and poo charity to talk all things bladder and bowel. In this episode we focus on toilet training, constipation and nighttime dryness. Alina gives us loads of really fabulous information based on her extensive experience as well as the latest research. For me to be honest, chatting with Alina was a bit like being on an episode of QI - everything you think you know is wrong!

    Although lots of health visitors are now likely spending less time talking to parents about toilet training and our nursery nurse colleagues may be taking on more of this role, recording this chat reminded me just how complex and important these issues can be for families and I certainly learnt loads from Alina.

    We talk about lots of myth busting around common questions - when should parents start thinking about toilet training and how do you know the child is 'ready'? What is the first line treatment for constipation according to the NICE guidelines? Is dietary change the best solution? You might be surprised by some of the answers, I certainly was!

    We would love to hear from you with any suggestions or comments to iamahealthvisitor@gmail.com

    Cleft lip and palate

    Cleft lip and palate

    Just in time for cleft lip and palate awareness week 2019 Jenny interviews mum Jenny (of @mamaboost) and her lovely little one Will. Both Jen and Will were born with bilateral cleft lip and palate and Jen was kind enough to explore with us their journey from diagnosis antenatally to his recent surgery.

    We talk about feeding challenges and different options, Jen's experience of discovering Will would have a cleft, her birth and early days with Will as well as speaking to her again after Will had his surgery. She shares with us some suggestions of where to signpost families for additional support.

    Thanks very much to Jen for sharing their story... and apologies for the sound quality and little additions to the podcast from the newest member of the team!

    As ever we would love to hear from you with comments or suggestions to iamahealthvisitor@gmail.com

    Running a Health Promotion Group

    Running a Health Promotion Group

    Health visitors often get thrown into running groups - whether they are antenatal groups, weaning, minor illness or first aid; even team meetings or group supervision sessions. Sometimes we can go out for home visits and end up running an impromptu health promotion group!

    For anyone who has felt overwhelmed by the prospect of running a group with little to no experience or specific training in this, know that this is totally normal! Also tune in and we will try to share some tips and ideas from our own experience; loosely based around the ’forming, storming, norming and performing’ model.

    Thank-you for listening. Do send your suggestions or ideas as well as examples of groups you are running to iamahealthvisitor@gmail.com
