What are the Standards of Conduct for Certified CHWs?

Any health professional in Massachusetts who obtains a license or certification through the Bureau of Health Professions Licensure, must agree to behave according to the Standards of Conduct. The Standard of Conduct for Certified CHWs outlines the boundaries of the CHW relationship with employers, clients, and community members.  When you sign the application, you are agreeing to behave according to these standards if you become a Certified CHW. Once you are granted certification, failure to adhere to these standards could result in the Board revoking your certification.
