NEW! WORKSHOPS AVAILABLE ON EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT AND SUPERVISION OF COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS

 

This is a one-day overview of the emerging field of Community Health Workers for managers and supervisors. Discussion will be tailored to the specific interests of workshop participants, but the broad topics include:
 
1. Who (and What) are Community Health Workers? definitions, roles and ongoing debates
 
2. Job definition for CHW positions: generic position descriptions and formal job design
 
3. Effective recruitment and selection: qualities to look for; recruitment strategies
 
4. Effective CHW training: emerging standards in core competencies and instructional methods
 
5. Supervisory roles, skills and methods: attributes and practices necessary for successful supervision - not everyone can do it; clinical expertise is not enough!
 
6. Working with CHWs in research projects: what do CHWs need to learn in order to be effective partners in a research study? How can they help conduct community-based participatory research?
 
7. CHW Career Advancement: methods for retention and advancement, both within the CHW field and transitions into other related careers (nursing, social work etc.)
 
8. CHW credentialing: current trends, systems in place. What are potential benefits of credentialing to CHWs themselves? The employer? The community? What are the risks?
 
9. Financing CHW services: past patterns and future opportunities. Financing models, measures of ROI or cost-effectiveness.
