Intended Audience:
This educational opportunity is for health center staff at all levels who work with the migratory and seasonal agricultural workers (MSAW) population, or who have an interest in learning more. 

Description:
This training will provide health center staff an opportunity to increase their understanding of the unique characteristics of the MSAW population, including barriers to access and strategies to increase access to care for this vulnerable population. This training will allow participants to share information regarding services, promising practices, and resources that can be shared among the network . The training also will highlight the importance of Cultural Humility as a key strategy in delivering care to this population.
 

  • Part One.  Following a networking exercise, the morning session will focus on the information needed to understand this population and the culture of the work that they do. We will provide a refresher of the key definitions and classifications of agricultural workers, and review the registration and verification process through the use of case studies in an effort to continue increasing access to health care for agricultural workers.
 
  • Part Two. The afternoon session will be a facilitated discussion where we will review last year’s work related to agricultural/demographic trends and service delivery challenges, which will lead the group toward creating action plans with specific strategies to help increase access to care for the agricultural worker population. All participants will be invited to join an Increase Access to Care Network (IAC), led by NCFH, where they will have an opportunity to receive ongoing training, support, and access to valuable resources.
