JSI will focus on the following key areas as the starting point of the health literacy environmental scan: understanding the issue of health literacy in Colorado, promoting promising or proven approaches; and incentivizing effective intervention. The approach to conducting the CO health literacy environmental scan includes two main components: (1) conducting a literature review and review of secondary data; and (2) qualitative data collection and analysis through key informant interviews and focus groups. JSI will weave the results of both components into a final report.
