The Role of Community Health Workers in Improving Healthcare Access in Underserved Areas
Community health workers (CHWs) are an integral part of healthcare delivery systems in many underserved areas around the world. Their roles include providing preventive healthcare services, health education, and promoting healthy behaviors within their communities. The use of CHWs has been found to be effective in improving healthcare access and outcomes in underserved areas, where there are often inadequate healthcare facilities and a shortage of trained medical personnel. In this article, we will discuss the importance of CHWs in improving healthcare access in underserved areas and the role they play in promoting community health.
Top 8 Skills Needed for a Successful Healthcare Career in Nigeria
Effective communication is essential in healthcare, and healthcare professionals need to be able to communicate effectively with patients, colleagues, and other stakeholders. You should be able to convey information clearly and accurately, listen actively, and ask questions. Poor communication can lead to misunderstandings, misdiagnosis, and other issues that can affect patient outcomes. For example, a nurse who is unable to communicate effectively with a patient who speaks a different language may not be able to understand their symptoms, leading to delayed or incorrect treatment.
The Importance of Interprofessional Collaboration in Healthcare
Interprofessional collaboration in healthcare allows healthcare professionals to leverage their collective knowledge and expertise to address complex healthcare challenges. By working together, healthcare professionals can streamline care delivery processes, improve patient outcomes, and enhance communication and coordination. This approach to care delivery can also lead to professional development and help healthcare professionals to stay up-to-date with the latest advances in healthcare.
As one of the most skill-focused health science & technology institutions in Nigeria, we strive to stay relevant, giving value for money, deliver on our promise and producing highly-skilled youths to drive the medical and health sector. Here are reasons why prospective students aiming to work in the medical and health industry should consider studying at CAHST.

We seek to deepen knowledge and to encourage creativity and hardwork in a way that leads to adept skill acquisition, thereby reducing and hopefully eliminating the deficiency of human capacity which seeks to entrench itself in our national economy.
While access to education in Nigeria is often faced with lot of barriers, preventing a number of very intelligent prospective student of the opportunities to acquire professional skills to fit into the economy, CAHST innovates a number of ways to remove these barriers and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to gain further training and is able to fit into the labour market.
All a student needs is to access our education counselors if unsure of the courses that fit into their career perspective, and be committed to face well challenging training program at CAHST.
Some programs may require students to take external examinations at the end of their studies, while others do not require external examination but would expect students to complete and pass all the prescribed courses and examinations, and to fulfill all the set criteria to be certified in the discipline of their choice.
