2017 NADRC Webinar (June 20, 2017): Using BRFSS Data from the Cognitive Decline and Caregiver Modules for Action (weblink/PDF)

The subject of this webinar is the CDC's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). BRFSS is a nationally representative survey of states and territories in the United States. The BRFSS is used to collect data about U.S. adults regarding their health-related risk behaviors, chronic health conditions and use of preventive services. Results of the BRFSS have been used to develop health promotion activities across the country. States can leverage findings from the BRFSS cognitive decline and caregiver modules to influence changes in their long-term services and supports systems, and to educate decision makers.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
· Discuss the BRFSS’ background, purpose, and types of data collected;
· Describe the BRFSS cognitive decline and caregiver modules and their purpose; and,
· List ways to translate BRFSS data into outcome-oriented actions.

Presenters: Lisa C. McGuire, PhD and Wayne Tormala
