New Guide Helps with CHW Recruiting and Training

A collaboration of three organizations has published the new resource “Community Health Worker/Peer Workforce: Recruiting and Hiring for SDOH Screening.” MHP Salud, the Corporation for Supportive Housing, and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council – all of which are funded through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) – drew upon lessons learned from health centers that have successfully hired, trained, integrated, and retained Community Health Workers (CHWs) and peers with lived experience. The guide provides best practices developed through interviews and research, focused on the CHW and peer role in social determinants of health (SDOH) screening and addressing related disparities, like the impacts of COVID-19.
