Community Champion Toolkit

This Community Champion Toolkit is to be used by selected health care organization Community Champions and their supervisors as they step through the program. Each toolkit page contains key tools to help build Community Champion skill sets that enhance their role in community health planning and supports ongoing educational training. 

The Community Champion Toolkit was developed to provide Community Champions and their supervisors an overview of the community care coordination activities that selected health care organizations and communities will undertake during the multi-year DRCHSD Program

This is designed to assist Community Champion in gaining a better understanding of tools that support their health care organization with the implementation of best practices, and resources that will help their communities to develop a community care coordination plan.
