Promote Health Literacy
Health Confianza provides free training and advanced health literacy education to social workers and health care workers who are often the first line of defense in communicating with the public on high priority health issues. Our valued health communicators include community leaders, nurses, health professionals, community organizers and community health workers/ Promotores de Salud.
Health Worker Training
Are you seeking more in-depth learning about health literacy communication techniques, to build a supportive professional peer network, and to learn from local healthcare leaders? Then consider the evidence-based ECHO telementoring program, a virtual community where peers share support, guidance and feedback. We will develop and facilitate ECHOs on COVID-19, COVID-19 vaccines, health literacy and evidence based communication practices for physicians, nurses, medical assistants and CHWs serving the priority 22 zip codes.
Can your healthcare team benefit from further training on health literacy and effective health communications? Do they have limited time for such training? If so, we can provide webinars or in-person workshops for physicians, nurses, school nurses, medical assistants, physicians assistants, Community Health Workers (CHW), and other allied health professionals on “Talking to Patients about COVID-19 Vaccines”. Additional topics will be developed based upon partner identified needs.
Health Confianza has provided small grants to student and faculty-led health literacy projects and initiatives that will benefit the community. In summer of 2023, these organizations will share their findings and learnings with the entire Health Confianza community at our Health Confianza Symposium set for June 9, 2023.
