Resources and Reference Materials on CHWs and Clinical Care Teams

Collaborations between Community Health Workers (CHWs) and Clinical Care Teams can have a positive impact on the health of the communities they serve. Because CHWs live in and speak the language of the community, it puts them in a unique position to contribute to clinical care teams. Their connections to community members helps them better understand the context behind a patients condition which leads to the development of more effective care plans. These resources were developed by MHP Salud to help Health Centers integrate CHWs into care teams and can serve as references for best practices when implementing Community Health Worker programs.

This comparative analysis includes the presence of minority and special populations and the types of chronic diseases that are treated to understand the role community composition plays in determining the presence of CHWs within Health Centers.
