Making the Case for Community Health Workers on Clinical Care Teams: A Single-Session Implementation Guide
Although Community Health Workers (CHWs) have a long history of successfully addressing health disparities, their full potential has yet to be realized in a clinical setting. A significant obstacle to achieving full integration of CHWs on health care teams is confusion regarding the role of a CHW on part of clinical staff. This guide is meant to address this obstacle in order to garner stronger support for CHWs in clinical settings. The information in this guide is meant to prepare a CHW advocate to present to clinical staff on the role of CHW in clinical settings.
