ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice announces the intention of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to request that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve the proposed information collection project: ‘‘Assessing the Impact of the Patient Safety Improvement Corps (PSIC) Training Program.’’ In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), AHRQ invites the public to comment on this proposed information collection. DATES: Comments on this notice must be received by June 16, 2008. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be submitted to: Doris Lefkowitz, Reports Clearance Officer, AHRQ, by e-mail at doris.lefkowitz@ahrq.hhs.gov. Copies of the proposed collection plans, data collection instruments, and specific details on the estimated burden can be obtained from the AHRQ Reports Clearance Officer. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Doris Lefkowitz, AHRQ Reports SUMMARY: Assessing the Impact of the Patient Safety Improvement Corps (PSIC) Training Program AHRQ proposes to assess the impact of the PSIC training program. This threeweek program was designed and implemented by AHRQ and the Veterans’ Administration’s (VA) National Center for Patient Safety (NCPS) to improve patient safety by training participants in various patient safety concepts, tools, information, and techniques. The PSIC program represents a new approach to training for AHRQ by focusing on disseminating patient safety information and building skill sets to ultimately foster a national network of individuals who support, promote, and speak a common language of patient safety. Participants have included representatives from State health departments, hospitals and health systems, Quality Improvement Organizations, and a very small number of other types of organizations. AHRQ will use an independent contractor to conduct the assessment of the PSIC training program. The goal of the assessment is to determine the extent to which the PSIC concepts, tools, information, and techniques have been used on the job by training participants and successfully disseminated within and beyond the participating organizations, local areas, regions, and States. AHRQ is assessing the PSIC program pursuant to its authority under 42 U.S.C. 299(b) and 42 U.S.C. 299a(a) to evaluate its strategies for improving health care quality. The assessment involves two Webbased questionnaires to examine posttraining activities and patient safety outcomes of the training from multiple perspectives. One questionnaire is directed to training participants while the other is directed to leaders of the organizations from which the training participants were selected. Questionnaires will focus on the following topics: (1) Post-PSIC activities (including how PSIC material has been utilized in their home organizations, types of patient safety activities conducted post-PSIC, and number of people trained in some or all aspects of PSIC since their attendance); (2) barriers to and facilitators of the use of PSIC in the workplace; and (3) perceived outcomes of PSIC participation (e.g., improved patient safety; improved patient safety processes, standards, or policies; improved investigative and analytical processes and selection and implementation of patient safety interventions; improved patient safety culture; improved communications). Method of Collection All training participants and organizational leaders from participating organizations will be invited to respond to their corresponding Web-based questionnaire. Invitations will be sent via e-mail, using contact information previously collected by AHRQ and NCPS. Standard non-response follow-up techniques, such as two reminder emails that include the link to the questionnaire, will be used. Individuals and organizations will be assured of the privacy of their responses. Estimated Annual Respondent Burden Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the respondents’ time to participate in the study. Each questionnaire is expected to require about 30 minutes to complete, resulting in a total burden of 188 hours. Exhibit 2 shows the estimated annualized cost burden based on the respondents’ time to participate in the study. The total cost burden is estimated to be $6,278.60.
