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 toolkit is meant to address this obstacle in order to garner stronger support for CHWs in clinical settings. The information in this toolkit is meant to prepare a CHW advocate to present to clinical staff on the role of CHW in clinical settings.
MHP Salud resources are culturally and linguistically responsive, easy-to-use, and created specifically for Community Health Worker programs operating within isolated or underserved communities. Materials are free to download with registration. A full list of health education resources, in English and Spanish, is available here.
