Project: Drug Abuse Warning Network (OMB No. 0930–0078)—Revision The Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) is an ongoing data system that collects information on drug-related medical emergencies as reported from about 350 hospitals nationwide, and drug-related deaths as reported from 11 states with centralized Medical Examiner offices and 125 medical examiners/coroner jurisdictions (ME/C) in 32 metropolitan areas. DAWN provides national and metropolitan estimates of substances involved with drug-related emergency department (ED) visits; disseminates information about substances involved in deaths investigated by participating medical examiners and coroners (ME/Cs); tracks drug abuse patterns, trends, and the emergence of new substances; monitors post-market adverse drug incidents; assesses health hazards associated with the use of illicit, prescription, and overthe-counter drugs; and generates information for national and local drug abuse policy and program planning. DAWN data are used by Federal, State, and local agencies, as well as universities, pharmaceutical companies, and the media. From 2009 to 2011, DAWN will continue to recruit hospitals in the 13 oversampled metropolitan areas and in the remainder of the U.S. in order to improve the precision of estimates, adding approximately 43 sampled hospitals that are currently not C:\FR\FM\26AUN1.SGM 26AUN1 50335 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 166 / Tuesday, August 26, 2008 / Notices participating.

In 2009 and 2010, DAWN plans to recruit 2 States with centralized ME/C systems. To achieve full participation by ME/Cs in the metropolitan areas currently covered, DAWN plans to recruit approximately 20 more ME/Cs from the 13 metropolitan areas, and approximately 20 ME/Cs from metropolitan areas in the rest of the country. DAWN data are submitted electronically, using eHERS (electronic Hospital Emergency Reporting System) and eMERS (electronic Medical Examiner Reporting System). In most of the facilities participating in DAWN (83 percent of the EDs and 58 percent of the ME/C offices), data are collected by government contractor staff; these facilities are not included in the burden statement because the facility staff are not involved in data collection. The annual burden estimates for those EDs and ME/C offices that collect the data using their own staff are shown below. There will be minor editorial changes to both the ED and ME/C reporting forms to simplify reporting. On the ME/C reporting form, a data element for case narrative will be added. These changes are not anticipated to impact the overall burden.

that collects information on drug-related medical emergencies as 
reported from about 350 hospitals nationwide, and drug-related deaths 
as reported from 11 states with centralized Medical Examiner offices
