Why Train Supervisors?
Once you have the right staff in place, providing high quality supervision that supports Community Health Workers in doing their job well is essential. Supervising Community Health Workers is often very different from overseeing and managing staff in other types of positions and can require some unique strategies to make the process both beneficial and efficient for everyone involved.
Supervisors who understand and value the work that Community Health Workers are doing, actively work to connect them with other team members, and provide support and guidance to their team of Community Health Workers help to make sure their Community Health Worker program is as successful as possible.
