Thomas et al describe the development of a health visiting community of practice (CoP) for the Family Resilience Assessment Instrument and Tool (FRAIT) in Wales. The FRAIT was developed and validity-tested by academics at the University of South Wales and health visitors in Wales. The FRAIT was launched in 2017 to contribute to HV assessments and is embedded in the Healthy Child Wales Programme. The FRAIT is used to assist HVs in their decision-making, care planning and planning for further interventions and resources. Negativity among HVs in Wales about the FRAIT and resistance to using it became apparent through social media postings and general feedback to the FRAIT development team.
