National Literacy and Health Research Program Needs Assessment and Environmental Scan (2002)

The objectives of this study were to identify:
-gaps in knowledge in literacy and health research in Canada;
-current and proposed initiatives in literacy and health in Canada;
-resources and opportunities for research in literacy and health in Canada.

In general, it was found that Canada has an abundance of literacy and health projects, but relatively little research. Projects included plain writing services and initiatives, translation and interpretation of health information, awareness-raising publications, staff sensitivity training programs, new literacy curricula, and resource collections.
