Module 2: Steps to Implementing a Direct Care Professional Peer Mentor Program

A Checklist of Steps

A checklist of the steps needed to begin the implementation process can be helpful in keeping things on track. And there is nothing like the rewarding feeling of marking something as "completed" on one's checklist! Below is a sample checklist as well as a downloadable and printable document for your planning committee. Throughout this module we will be providing samples, templates, explanations, lessons learned from other providers who have implemented a DCP Peer Mentor Program, and other helpful modifiable resources.

Resource #4: “Checklist of Steps to Implementing a Direct Care Professional Peer Mentor Program.”
