Abstract

The Health Visitor Observation and Assessment of the Infant (HOAI) was introduced throughout Wales as a key intervention within the Healthy Child Wales Programme, launched by the Welsh Government in 2016. It is an approach used by health visitors in Wales to observe and assess an infant's physical development and emotional wellbeing. This article discusses the findings of the first phase of a research project aimed at developing an evidence-informed tool to guide and standardise health visiting practice when implementing and recording the HOAI. It will go on to explore health visitors' views of the current HOAI aids and the development of a HOAI tool. Phase one results indicate mixed views among health visitors relating to the accessibility, desirability and usability of current HOAI aids. A clear theme emerged relating to participants' desire for a HOAI tool that is user friendly, clear, concise and avoids duplication.
