Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is requesting to conduct health-related surveillance through the Kansas Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (KS BRFSS) and increase the use of BRFSS data to inform public health actions to improve health. By doing so we ultimately aim to improve the quality of life of Kansans and reduce health conditions. This will be accomplished by meeting short, intermediate, and long-term outcomes. Short-term outcomes that will be realized each year of the three-year project period consist of increased access to KS BRFSS data and increased data dissemination to public health stakeholders and maintenance of the targeted number of completed interviews from survey responders. Intermediate outcomes that will be realized by the end of the project period include increased use of KS BRFSS data to identify health risk behaviors and health status of populations, increased number of public health programs that use KS BRFSS data, and continued use of KS BRFSS data by decision-makers to inform policy decisions at the agency, community, county, and state levels. Over the long-term, KS BRFSS data will contribute to increased public policy decisions that improve population health in Kansas and the United States. Ultimately, the impact will be improved health-related quality of life, reduced mortality and morbidity related to health risk behaviors and health conditions, and reduced prevalence of behavioral health conditions.
