KDHE promotes Community Health Perceptions Survey
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and the Healthy Kansans 2030 Steering Committee are promoting a 10-minute Community Health Perceptions Survey to better understand the most serious health issues affecting people in our state.
The Community Health Perceptions Survey is part of Healthy Kansans 2030 activities to gather information for a state-wide health assessment and strategic planning process designed to improve the health and well-being of Kansas residents. Survey results will help make sure that everyone in Kansas has a fair opportunity to live a healthy life.
“We want to know what health care is like for Kansas residents, so the survey asks questions such as how easy it is for you to find a doctor or to pay for health care,” said Ashley Goss, KDHE Deputy Secretary for Public Health. “Most important, we want to look to the future, and need your opinion about what things we should be focusing on to improve the health status of Kansans.”
The survey is anonymous. Survey results will be combined for analysis, and it will not be possible to link survey responses back to the person completing the survey. The survey is available at this link – https://bit.ly/healthy-ks-2030 – and will take about 10 minutes to complete. The survey deadline is Oct. 4.
The survey is available online in six languages – English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, German and Arabic. Leaders of Healthy Kansans 2030 are especially interested in hearing from people whose voices are too often under-represented in conversations about health. They plan to distribute this survey as widely as possible to ensure that Kansans from all walks of the life have an opportunity to weigh in with their thoughts about the state of health in Kansas today and their health priorities for the future.
This survey is part of a bigger project that will lead to a State Health Improvement Plan. Hearing what matters to you will help make sure that plan includes the right things. Learn more about Healthy Kansans 2030 at https://www.kdheks.gov/cpm/NPHPSP.htm.
