Improving Linkage and Retention in HIV Care: Lessons from Implementing a CHW Program in HIV Care

September 12, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

As community health workers (CHWs) are utilized more and more in health care settings, questions have emerged about the role of CHWs and how the CHW role is different from others on the HIV care team. Clear roles are critical for successful integration. In this webinar, participants will learn about the roles and skills that CHWs need to be effective in their work. Presenters from Boston University, the McGregor Clinic, an AIDS service organization, in Fort Myers, FL, and CrescentCare, a dually funded FQHC in New Orleans, LA, will discuss the role of the CHW on the HIV care team and share lessons learned from a 3 year initiative on topics such as establishing program systems and infrastructure, hiring, training, job retention, and supervision.

 

An extensive period for questions and discussion is also planned.
