Abstract: As part of the Healthy Hawaii Initiative professional education campaign, 14 focus groups were conducted across the state with primary care providers, staff and community leaders to determine what messages about healthy lifestyles work with patients in health care settings. Focus group members indicated that culturally sensitive and personalized messages, positive reinforcement, and teamwork are most effective in counseling patients.
