What we are reading: A literature review which looks at five different studies on how CHWs can improve cancer outcomes. “We found that CHW/PN programs can improve completion and timeliness of breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening and diagnosis among the medically underserved populations served by FQHCs. The outcomes in these studies clearly illustrate that FQHC-CHWs/PNs partnerships can serve the unique needs of diverse and underserved communities in both clinical and community settings”
