Training for Professions Working with CHWs

Community Health Workers can be incredibly effective as part of a clinical care team. We invite you to learn why our L.E.A.D. training is the most complete and trusted curriculum on the market.

A Complete Training Package for Teams Working with CHWs

Community Health Workers are often just one member of a highly trained team, but what exactly can they do for a clinical or care team? Our Professions Working with Community Health Workers L.E.A.D. (Listen, Empower, Advance, Deliver) curriculum sessions are for related positions in your organization such as nurses, social workers, medical assistants, physicians, outreach workers, and others that may not be familiar with Community Health Workers or the CHW model.

The Professions Working with Community Health Workers L.E.A.D. curriculum sessions are designed as a complement to the Community Health Worker training sessions.

Community Health Workers are an important part of the health environment but understanding who they are, what they do, and how they work within an organization is important. This high-level overview of CHWs is provided to those who may not currently work with CHWs or understand the unique tools and activities that make their role in the organization key to increased access and culturally appropriate care.

  • Define Community Health Workers, their roles and their skill sets.
  • Differentiate between Community Health Workers, Lideres, and Outreach Workers and determine when each is appropriate.
  • Describe popular education techniques and the key tools used by CHWs.
  • Define Return on Investment and the financial worth of CHWs to organizations.
