NEW!  Community Health Worker & Promotora Trainings!

CPCA is offering this multi-part training program to introduce health centers and regional associations to a new workforce; community health workers (CHWs) and Promotoras who can be integrated into a clinic to help provide a more holistic approach when caring for patients.

Training providers know that whole-person care is important, but an additional step many providers are taking is expanding their team to include CHWs. CHWs (also known as Promotoras, health coaches, and a number of other titles) have demonstrated their ability to improve health behaviors and outcomes, particularly for racial and ethnic minority communities. CHWs provide culturally responsive services to educate patients, identify resources, provide case management, support care coordination activities, and become part of an individual's support network. Because many of these allied health professionals come from the community, many have a heightened understanding of the needs of the people in their communities, including cultural barriers to care. 

According to a survey conducted by the California Primary Care Association, more than 45 community health clinics have incorporated CHWs into their care team. You can be next!
