Background: Following the successful launch and implementation of FRAIT (Family Resilience Assessment Instrument and Tool) in Wales (2017), we will be showcasing the latest developments with a view to building an international network for addressing family resilience.
FRAIT, the Family Resilience Assessment Instrument and Tool created by health visitors (public health nurses) for health visitors to use in their daily practice with families who have children under 5 years old. The FRAIT comprises of the FRAI (Family Resilience Assessment Instrument) and the FRAT (Family Resilience Assessment Tool), both of which form an evidenced based assessment for health visitors (public health nurses) in their daily practice. Its purpose is to assist health visitors (public health nurses) in decision making, care planning and planning for further interventions and resources. Using this standardised approach can help to provide an opening with families to discuss resilience and its protective factors. www.frait.wales.
A full programme for the day will be shared with delegates in due course.
There are 100 places available and these will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
