Community Health Education for Community Health Workers

NWVista_CHWRevised2_9-20-14During the 1990s the skin staph infection community-acquired (CA) Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) first emerged as an important cause of infection in communities. On September 20th, the UT Health Science Center Libraries provided a presentation for area Community Health Workers (CHWs) about recent South Texas research on CA-MRSA. The CHWs were attending a continuing education day sponsored by the NW Vista College Community Health Worker program.

The Community Health Worker program at Northwest Vista College prepares students to work in public health, private health care delivery systems, community-based social service agencies, and health care insurance organizations. Community Health Workers provide services to increase wellness and improve access to health services through outreach activities to target populations.

In Texas, Community Health Worker programs are certified by the Texas State Department of Health as an authorized and certified training site for Community Health Workers. Senate Bill 1051 (77th Texas Legislative Sessions) calls for the Texas Department of State Health Services to establish and operate a training and certification program for persons who act as promotores or community health workers, instructors and sponsoring institutions/training programs.

The Library presentation focused on a community health education project that resulted from research on the rate of CA-MRSA in skin and soft tissue infections done in 10 clinics in 4 counties in South Texas by the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy and the UT Health Science Center Pharmacotherapy Education & Research Center. The initiative brought together the Libraries, researchers, the South Central Area Health Education Center, UHS CareLink Clinic, and other community partners to improve awareness about CA-MRSA.
