Dialogues about Palliative Care With Community Health Workers (CHW)

Essential Skills for All Providers

INTRODUCING PALLIATIVE CARE CONCEPTS

Community health workers (CHW) are joined by chaplains, psychologists, and physicians to discuss psychological, spiritual, and socio-behavioral components of patient care and how palliative care serves patients with life limiting illnesses.  Each conversation is a partnership between a CHW and a health care professional. Some topics are presented in English and other conversations are in Spanish. These conversations are intended for educational purposes as resource for CHW educators and individuals. Dialogues range from 25-50 minutes.

English-language topics include:

  • Conversations with Minority Communities about Palliative and End of Life Care:  A Community Health Worker and Chaplain’s Role and Value
  • Attending to Clients and Their World: A Closer Look at the CHW Relationship
  • Supporting Patients with Patient-Centered Communication Skills
