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!

August 2013 – Curriculum Development and Review

We’re working with Native Community Development Associates to develop training modules for First Choice Community Healthcare. The modules will be used to train staff in different competencies. ┬áCheryl Christopherson, pictured below, will train staff using the modules in the coming months.

We love working with clients to create training curricula and engaging materials that help their employees and the communities they serve. In addition to First Choice, we are also currently reviewing curricula and creating materials for the Altarum Institute and their client the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
