Needs assessment questions should seek to identify the types of information that a particular audience group needs.
Common information needs assessment questions center around identifying the types of information that a particular audience group needs, the ways in which the audience currently accesses information, and the barriers they face in accessing information.
Specific examples of information needs assessment questions include:
- What sources of information does your audience use?
- How does your audience store, transfer, and share information?
- What are the barriers to accessing, sharing, and using health information?
- What KM tools and techniques are preferred?
