In May, the Farmworker Health Network (FHN) released its updated Key Resources for Agricultural Worker Health, which provide best practices and field-tested models for health center staff and board members serving agricultural workers. The FHN, a coalition of six HRSA-funded National Cooperative Agreement (NCA) organizations, provides training and technical assistance to health centers with a focus specifically designed to enhance care to agricultural workers and their families. The FHN members, comprised of Migrant Clinicians Network, MHP Salud, Farmworker Justice, National Center for Farmworker Health, Health Outreach Partners, and the National Association of Community Health Centers, contribute critical resources on topics relevant to agricultural worker health.
Here are a few topics covered in the new Key Resources list:
- Health center board membership toolkit;
- Bilingual digital stories on various health topics, including agricultural worker identification;
- Health policy bulletin related to recent developments in policy and research;
- Diabetes materials for agricultural worker patients;
- Transportation and health access quality improvement toolkit;
- Outreach reference manual;
- Guide to develop easy-to understand materials;
- Community Health Workers and social determinants of health resources;
- Hypertension and heart health guide for Community Health Workers;
- Continuity of care services for mobile patients;
- Clinical education materials.
