DSHS oversees the statewide certification and training program for community health workers (CHWs), also known as promotores, under Texas Health and Safety Code, Chapter 48. DSHS also collects and reports data through the Annual Report of the Promotor(a) or CHW Training and Certification Advisory Committee, including training information and the number and demographics of certified CHWs and instructors. The Promotor(a) or CHW Training and Certification Advisory Committee identified a need to explore CHWs’ perspectives on the benefits and challenges of certification. The Advisory Committee formed an Evaluation Workgroup to identify key survey areas, to draft and refine survey questions and format, and to pilot the survey in 2013 and 2014.
