Community Health Worker/Peer Workforce Recruiting and Hiring for Social Determinants of Health Screening

This is a best practices guide for health centers considering or evaluating a community health worker or peer workforce program in their health center to assist with SDOH screening.

This publication focuses on how to integrate this workforce into clinic workflow and care teams. Both providers and community health workers were interviewed to share their experiences and facilitators in hiring, training, and integration into the health center environment.

We also explored how this workforce’s role has evolved during the COVID-19 pandemic. This publication was in collaboration with CSH and MHP Salud.
