Train-The-Trainers: A Curriculum for Training Family
Invest in Kids has developed a comprehensive curriculum
to recruit, train and supervise family home visitors by public health nurses and other
community supervisors. The curriculum creates an immediate capacity for public health
nurses or others to deliver family home visiting to very high-risk families, where
previously little or no such experience existed. Invest in Kids has customized the
train-the-trainer curriculum for home visiting programs in Ontario, Manitoba, Nova Scotia
and Alberta. This training is now available for all new trainers.

Invest in Kids has developed a comprehensive
train-the-trainer curriculum to train and supervise nurse home visitors for the universal
postpartum home visiting component of Ontario's Healthy Babies, Health Children program.
This initiative built an immediate capacity in the health units to offer home visits to

A Guide for Professional Home Visiting: A
Strategy for Intervention with High Risk Families
Invest in Kids organized a consortium, led by the Centre
for Health Promotion at the University of Toronto with Ryerson Polytechnic University and
the Hincks-Dellcrest Institute, to create a curriculum that provides intensive training
for those who visit very high risk families, where professional expertise is required. The
first institute was run for Ontario nurses in the Healthy Babies, Healthy Children
program. After the Ontario Institute, Invest in Kids will offer this institute to other
professionals (e.g., psychologists, social workers) from across Canada.
