[FR Doc. 05–14485 Filed 7–21–05; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4165–15–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES National Institutes of Health Proposed Collection; Comment Request; The National Diabetes Education Program Survey of the Public SUMMARY: Under provisions of Section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for review and approval of the information collection listed below. This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on September 9, 2003, pages 53176–53177, and allowed 60 days for public comment. No public comments were received. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment. The National Institutes of Health may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Proposed Collection: Title: The National Diabetes Educations Program Survey of the Public. Type of Information Collection Request: New. Need and Use of Information Collection: The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) is a partnership of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and more than 200 public and private organizations. The long-term goals of the NDEP are to improve the treatment and health outcomes of people with diabetes, to promote early diagnosis, and, ultimately, to prevent the onset of PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 diabetes. The NDEP objectives are: (1) To increase awareness of the seriousness of diabetes, its risk factors, and strategies for preventing diabetes and its complications among people at risk for diabetes; (2) to improve understanding about diabetes and its control and to promote better selfmanagement behaviors among people with diabetes; (3) to improve health care providers’ understanding of diabetes and its control and to promote an integrated approach to care; (4) to promote health care policies that improve the quality of and access to diabetes care. Multiple strategies have been devised to address the NDEP objectives. These have been described in the NDEP Strategic Plan and include: (1) Creating partnerships with other organizations concerned about diabetes; (2) developing and implementing awareness and education activities with special emphasis on reaching the racial and ethnic populations disproportionately affected by diabetes; (3) identifying, developing, and disseminating educational tools and resources for the program’s diverse audiences; (4) promoting policies and activities to improve the quality of and access to diabetes care. The NDEP evaluation will document the extent to which the NDEP program has been implemented, and how successful it has been in meeting program objectives. The evaluation relies heavily on data gathered from existing national surveys such as National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), among others for this information. This clearance request is for the collection of additional primary data from NDEP target audiences on some key process and impact measures that are necessary to effectively evaluate the program. Approval is requested for survey of the public including people at risk for diabetes, people with diabetes and their families. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Type of Respondents: Adults. The annual reporting burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 1600; Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1; Average Burden Hours per Response: .25; and Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested: 400. The annualized cost to respondents is estimated at: $8,000.00. There are no Capital Costs to report. There are no Operating or Maintenance Costs to report. E:\FR\FM\22JYN1.SGM 22JYN1
