CHAMPS undertakes Region VIII Health Center Recruitment & Retention Surveys and publishes related Reports on an as-needed basis to provide an analysis of data collected from staff members at all Region VIII Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) Health Center Program grantees and look-alikes (primarily community, migrant, and homeless health centers). This project is undertaken in collaboration with the Region VIII State Primary Care Associations (SPCAs) to provide CHAMPS (the Region VIII PCA), the region’s SPCAs, and participating health centers with information vital to strengthening and enhancing successful recruitment and retention strategies already in place, and to developing new and innovative ways to support successful recruitment and retention of staff in an era of dynamic program expectations and ongoing challenges in finding, and keeping, highly qualified employees.
