All communities know the barriers to good health care—transportation costs, social stigma, lack of information, discrimination and time constraints. It’s critically important for community health workers to navigate through these barriers to bring the best possible care to their community. This 60-minute webinar takes you through the process of developing and piloting an online course specific to the needs of community health workers.

In this online seminar, you’ll learn in which circumstances it’s appropriate to offer an online course for community health workers and how to foster the right environment. You’ll learn how to identify and develop appropriate content for fully customized online modules. Plus, you’ll learn how to identify necessary components for successful implementation of an online hybrid course.
