Download as PDF 26640 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 90 / Thursday, May 10, 2007 / Notices health promotion consumer materials related to physical activity and healthy eating will be conducted in order to assess how the BFWHW materials can stimulate a conversation on physical activity and healthy eating during a clinical encounter, inform future BFWHW programming, and add to the peer-reviewed literature regarding women’s health and wellness initiatives. Towards this end, anonymous assessment forms will be used to collect data from young and adult women clients, health care providers, and administrators of health centers. Data collected will include process and outcome measures. Data domains include: the distribution and use of the materials in the health care setting during wellness and health maintenance/check-up visits; client and provider awareness of physical activity and nutrition behaviors; attitudes about the importance of physical activity and nutrition; self-efficacy; and increase in knowledge and intent to change physical activity and nutrition behaviors. A total of six organizations, which may include Federally Qualified Health Centers/Community Health Centers, faith-based organizations that offer health care services, worksite health centers, and school-based health clinics, will be selected for the study. Young women will complete anonymous assessment forms at school-based health centers; adult women will be assessed at other health care organizations. The providers at these sites will also be asked to complete a brief one-time anonymous assessment form. Telephone interviews will be conducted with an administrator of each of these sites as well. The data collection period at each site is estimated to last four months.

To accomplish that end, SAMHSA has determined that it is important to proactively seek the inclusion of new and qualified representatives on its peer review groups. Accordingly SAMHSA has developed an application form for use by individuals who wish to apply to serve as peer reviewers. The application form has been developed to capture the essential information about the individual applicants. Although consideration was given to requesting a resume from interested individuals, it is essential to have specific information from all applicants about their qualifications. The most consistent method to accomplish this is through completion of a standard form by all interested persons which captures information about knowledge, education, and experience in a consistent manner from all interested applicants. SAMHSA will use the information provided on the applications to identify appropriate peer grant reviewers. Depending on their experience and qualifications, applicants may be invited to serve as either grant reviewers or review group chairpersons.

associated with operating approved graduate medical residency training 
programs and indirect payments are designed to compensate hospitals for 
expenses associated with the treatment of more severely ill patients 
and the additional costs relating to teaching residents in such 
programs.
    The CHGME PP was reauthorized for a period of five years in October 
2006 by Pub. L. 109-307. The reauthorizing legislation requires that 
participating children's hospitals provide information about their 
residency training programs in an annual report that will be an

    Data are required to be collected on: (1) The types of training

pediatrics, internal medicine/pediatrics, and pediatric subspecialties 
including both medical subspecialties certified and non-medical 
subspecialties; (2) the number of training positions for residents, the 
number of such positions recruited to fill, and the number of positions 
filled; (3) the types of training that the hospital provided for 
residents related to the health care needs of different populations 
such as children who are underserved for reasons of family income or 
geographic location, including rural and urban areas; (4) the changes 
in residency training including changes in curricula, training 
experiences, and types of training programs, and benefits that have 
resulted from such changes and changes for purposes of training 
residents in the measurement and improvement and the quality and safety 
of patient care; and
