In 2012, SWAHEC distributed two surveys to CHWs and their employers to better understand the characteristics of CHWs in CT, as well as their roles, met and unmet training needs, and employment status. Employers were asked about funding mechanisms in place for CHWs that they employ, as well as attitudes about the use of CHWs. A total of 43 CHWs completed the CHW survey and 97 employers of CHWs responded to the employer survey. This report summarizes the findings of these surveys, and includes the following major sections: Community Health Worker Characteristics, Health Care Employer Characteristics, Training, and Reimbursement.
