When it comes to training your healthcare team, the meaning of “success” isn’t always the same. Budget cuts, changes in workforce and differing work environments can mean that a format that worked in the past may not work now.
That’s why a regular evaluation of a community health worker training program is a smart move. Scheduled assessments mean your organization stands to earn the highest return on investment. Plus, paying attention to how well people are learning will boost your staff’s involvement in the overall educational program. For many health departments and health systems, the biggest question when it comes to evaluating a professional development program is when does it make sense to move to online training.
