CHW Standing Orders Fact Sheet

Standing orders are a vehicle to empower trained and supervised Community Health Workers (CHWs) to provide specific services to specific patient populations within organizational guidelines as members of care teams. Examples include one-to-one patient self-management services related to prediabetes, diabetes and hypertension in the clinic, home and community. Several Minnesota CHW employers have developed and implemented CHW standing orders or similar vehicles, some with support under the Minnesota Department of Health’s CDC-funded Community Wellness Grant (CWG).
