Implement - Delivery Tool
The DIMENSIONS toolkit was was developed by the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, School of Medicine, Behavioral Health and Wellness Program. This toolkit is designed for use by a broad spectrum of organizations, including hospitals, healthcare clinics, and community agencies. Organizations
that serve populations that would benefit from a peer support program, such as behavioral health, chronic medical conditions, justice-involved, military, and
homeless are encouraged to utilize this toolkit. These materials are intended for administrators, healthcare providers, support staff, and, of course, peer specialists.
This guide brings together the best thinking from healthcare leadership and current literature to create a detailed guidebook about CHW programs — what they are, what’s required to implement a program of your own, and how your organization, your patients, and your community will benefit.
Using the information within the guidebook, you will be able to design and implement a CHW program to serve the patients within your community and achieve the Triple Aim — improved population health, improved patient experience, and lower per capita costs.
