Community Health Workers Development Programme Launch
October 2, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Interested in understanding what it’s actually like to be a Community Health Worker?
The Risk Work Programme is a new professional development course for Community Health Workers. This was created in collaboration between researchers based at the University of Birmingham, community health work organisations and The Hearth Centre, through funding received from the Economic and Social Research Council (ERSC) Impact Fund.
The five-session programme allows community health work practitioners to explore the role of risk in their work and trigger discussion about some of the issues that Community Health Workers might find most complex and what organisations can do to support them.
The Risk Work Programme will kick off with a launch event which will showcase material, including four short films about the work of Community Health Workers developed especially for this training programme, as well as exploring their experiences and their clients.
It will also provide a chance to hear about the latest research in this area, meet colleagues and perhaps spark future collaborations.
Attendance is free and refreshments will be provided. However, booking is essential as places are limited.
