Appendix B: Key Informant Interview Guide

In order to capture all of the information we talk about, I’d like to record/take notes about our conversation. I will not record your name in the interview and I will only start the recording with the beginning of the questions.

After the interview is completed, we will transcribe and code the interviews so that we can see if any themes arise across the multiple interviews conducted. Your answers will be used to compile input, however your responses will not be tied back to you in any way; the results of the interviews will only be reported in aggregate.

Now, let’s get started.

1.) Tell me about yourself and your organization. (Mission? How long in position? Service area?)

6.) What are community advocacy groups (or resources) in the area like?
