    It has been well established that adequate and appropriate training is necessary for community health workers (CHWs) to effectively address the health care needs of their communities. We used qualitative analysis to evaluate a health-training curriculum in rural Guatemala in order to gain further insights into best practices regarding CHW trainings. Our results indicate that curricula aimed at CHWs should not only be participatory, but also varied and include in-class simulations as well as in-field observational teaching.

    For many years, burnout has been a concern across multiple disciplines. Provider burnout (PB) in the healthcare team (HCT) can have detrimental effects on both the providers’ well-being and the level of care patients receive. Risk factors for PB are numerous and fall into three general categories: personal, situational, and organizational. In the face of widespread changes in the healthcare industry, healthcare provider (HP) resilience has emerged as a strategy to combat PB before it occurs and to ensure the sustainability of the HCT. Resilience can be built through various methods and can allow HPs to manage stresses in and out of the workplace. Resilience training has been shown to be effective in reducing stress and PB in student doctors, U.S. military HPs, and even patients. Increased HP resilience can lead to increased job satisfaction, better patient care, increased patient satisfaction with their HPs, as well as active involvement of patients in the maintenance of their own health. However, there remains a lack of resilience training programs for practicing HPs who did not receive training during their educational years. This paper will provide a brief review of current thoughts and research regarding PB and resilience.

    Recent conversations about healthcare reform generally offer only two solutions: either continued complex fixes of our current system, such as MACRA,1Public Option2 and the ‘Ryan Plan’,3or adoption of a single payer4 mechanism. There is, however, a third choice: a “Single System” healthcare reform proposal called EMBRACE (Expanding Medical and Behavioral Resources with Access to Care for Everyone)5.
