CHW Connect is our knowledge translation and exchange website for Community Health Workers (CHWs) in the Sioux Lookout Area. This website was developed and is hosted by Dignitas International, our partner on the CHW Diabetes Pilot Project, in collaboration with SLFNHA.
CHW Connect is a unique web platform that allows CHWs to connect across communities, access program training tools, and share healthy living resources with people living with diabetes and their families. The website also provides information on building a CHW program based on case studies from around the world, for use by community health leaders in the Sioux Lookout Area and beyond. Our first training module, Treatment Plan Support, is available on the site for trained CHWs to access as a reference tool, and for public access for those interested. We have also created a series of videos describing our project journey so that others can learn from the project.
