Reporting of Community Health Workers in the Uniform Data System (2019). Resource Type: Publication. Description: With Community Health Workers (CHWs) identified as a unique staffing category in the Uniform Data System (UDS) for the first time in 2016, the number of FTEs reported has been much lower than expected (879 FTEs across 1367 grantees). Although in 2017, a slight increase was shown (1,130.36 across 1373 grantees), these figures appear inconsistent with the anecdotal evidence of widespread utilization of CHWs in Health Center settings. These inconsistencies may reflect unclear guidance on how to accurately identify and report the work of CHWs. The goal of this tool is to provide resources that will help Health Centers to: Explore common CHW titles and roles Identify staff performing duties that may align with the CHW profession and should be reported under the CHW line in UDS Assess CHW knowledge, skills, and abilities by using the CHW Core Competencies checklist Review CHW training opportunities Access a list of UDS resources developed by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Access a list of CHW clinical integration resources Ultimately, the proper identification, reporting, and training of CHWs is key to increase the accuracy of the national representation of their work.

Long-term exposure to heavy physical work, heavy lifting and carrying, whole-body vibration, and work in awkward postures with trunk flexion may be risk factors for low back pain. Kneeling, bending, heavy lifting and carrying, vibrations from tractor driving and work in uncomfortable postures cause a number of musculoskeletal difficulties.
