As a community health outreach worker, a key role you play is providing health outreach to vulnerable populations to connect them with services. To do this well, community health workers must be able to identify when outreach should happen and how to develop the most effective plan for the outreach. Those training to become a community health worker as well as those in need of a refresher course can benefit from this training.
This learning opportunity addresses training topics identified in PHWINS 2017.
