March 2016 – Message Development

March 2016 – Message Development for Sexual Violence Prevention Initiative

Soda Creek is contracted with the New Mexico Department of Health to develop messages for a sexual violence prevention initiative. This month our team went through many versions of messages using both informal brainstorming and a formal, step-by-step message development process. We also met with partners who run rape crisis centers across the state to test the messages with them.

 

November 2013 – Develop Community Health Worker Curriculum

We’re working with the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center Urban Health Partners to develop training curriculum for Pathways navigators. We’re currently writing sections related to service coordination skills, advocacy, and community knowledge and assessment. The curriculum will be piloted with navigators in the coming months.

In the near future, the curriculum will be adapted for New Mexico’s statewide community health worker (CHW) competency training. As part of the Affordable Care Act, many community health centers can now be reimbursed through Medicaid for work that CHWs do. To be reimbursed, CHWs will need to complete a training (what we’re helping to develop curriculum for) and a practicum. We’re excited to be a part of the larger statewide team in this effort!
