MN CHW Toolkit

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) , in partnership with WellShare International and the MN CHW Alliance, is creating a Community Health Worker (CHW) toolkit. The target audience of the toolkit will be potential employers of CHWs, including a wide variety of organizations within the health care, dental, public health, long-term care, social services and behavioral health system. The purpose of the toolkit will be to inform potential employers how to plan for hiring CHWs, how to successfully integrate them into care delivery or care coordination models, and what potential benefits arise from hiring an CHW – benefits to the organization, to other members of a care-delivery team, and to the patients and clients served by the CHW.
