Does this apply to Guiding Question 4 (potential positive and negative implications of requiring CHW certification)? Yes
  • Comments Comments (
    0
    ) |
If yes for Guiding Question 4, explain. Authors summarize sentiments regarding certification as follows (pg 5): "Training and certification standards can help to enhance recognition of health worker roles and provide greater opportunities for reimbursement through state Medicaid programs and third-party insurers and also can increase workers' skills and ensure a high quality of care. On the other hand, there is concern about the effect of these requirements on the workforce. Some advocacy groups argue that requiring certification will significantly reduce the number of community health workers especially for programs that rely on volunteers and the help of undocumented aliens."
