The Kentucky Surveillance Quality Improvement (SQI) Program, along with similar programs in Colorado, Massachusetts, and Maryland, is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to improve our methodology for conducting injury surveillance. 

Multistate projects include those seeking to validate traumatic brain injury and suicide/self-harm case definitions. Kentucky-specific projects include the validation of International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems 10th revision (ICD-10) O codes for injury during pregnancy.
