Proposed Project Occupational Injuries and Illnesses Among Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Workers: A NEISS-Work Telephone Interview Survey—New— National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Studies have reported that EMS workers have higher rates of non-fatal PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 injuries and illnesses as compared to the general worker population. As EMS professionals are tasked with protecting the health of the public and treating urgent medical needs, it follows that understanding and preventing injuries and illnesses among EMS workers will have a benefit reaching beyond the workers to the general public. As mandated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Pub. L. 91–596), the mission of NIOSH is to conduct research and investigations on occupational safety and health. Related to this mission, the purpose of this project is to conduct research that will provide a detailed description of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses incurred by EMS workers. This project will bridge a gap of limited existing EMS worker injury and illness surveillance identified in a 2007 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, (NHTSA) report. The project will use two related data sources. The first source is data abstracted from medical records of EMS workers treated in a nationally stratified sample of emergency departments. These data are routinely collected by the occupational supplement to the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS-Work). The second data source, for which NIOSH is seeking OMB approval, is responses to telephone interview surveys of the injured and ill EMS workers identified within NEISS-Work. The proposed telephone interview surveys will supplement NEISS-Work data with an extensive description of EMS worker injuries and illnesses, including worker characteristics, injury types, injury circumstances, injury outcomes, and use of personal protective equipment. Previous reports describing occupational injuries and illnesses to EMS workers provide limited details on specific regions or sub-segments of the population and many are outdated. As compared to these earlier studies, the scope of the telephone interview data will be broader as it includes sampled cases nationwide and has no limitations in regards to type of employment (i.e., volunteer versus career). Results from the telephone interviews will be weighted and reported as national estimates. The sample size for the telephone interview survey is estimated to be approximately 175 EMS workers annually for the proposed four year duration of the study. This estimate is based on the number of EMS workers identified in previous years of NEISSWork data and a 50% response rate that is comparable to the rate of previously conducted National Electronic Injury E:\FR\FM\07NON1.SGM 07NON1 66247 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 217 / Friday, November 7, 2008 / Notices Surveillance System telephone interview studies. Each telephone interview will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, resulting in an annualized burden estimate of 58 hours. Using the routine NEISS-Work data, an analysis of all identified EMS workers will be performed to determine if there are any differences between the telephone interview responder and nonresponder groups. This project is a collaborative effort between the Division of Safety Research in the NIOSH and the Office of Emergency Medical Services in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Both agencies have a strong interest in improving surveillance of EMS worker injuries and illnesses to provide the information necessary for effectively targeting and implementing prevention efforts and, consequently, reducing occupational injuries and illnesses among EMS workers. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) will also contribute to this project as they are responsible for coordinating the collection of all NEISSWork data and for overseeing the collection of all telephone interview data.

Proposed Project Formative Research on Lung Cancer Screening—New—Division of Cancer The value of screening for lung cancer is a topic of scientific debate with important medical and economic consequences. Although chest x-rays (CXR) have been widely used for lung cancer screening, studies have shown that CXR with or without sputum cytology does not reduce mortality from lung cancer. Studies are currently underway to provide more information about the effectiveness of other types of screening tests, such as computed tomography (CT) scans and spiral CT scans. CDC proposes to conduct formative research to gather information from adult health care consumers and primary care physicians about experiences and practices related to lung cancer screening. Information will be collected over a two-year period. Of particular interest are long-term heavy smokers aged 40–70 who are considered high-risk for lung cancer. Information to be collected concerns their knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to preventive lung cancer screening and testing.

In addition, in-depth follow-up interviews will be conducted by telephone with a limited subset of health care consumers who report experience with screening tests such as spiral computed tomography (CT). Information will also be collected through focus groups composed of primary care physicians. Potential respondents will indicate their interest in participating by completing and returning a mailed screening form. Focus groups involving physicians will be conducted by telephone and will also collect information about knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to preventive cancer screening and testing. Four focus groups involving physicians will be conducted in each year of the study with an average of six respondents participating in each focus group. Two alternates will be recruited for each physician focus group in order to assure the participation of the targeted number of physician respondents. The results of this formative research project will be used to inform future research and educational efforts and to develop lung cancer screening and testing interventions.

Proposed Project

    Occupational Injuries and Illnesses Among Emergency Medical 
Services (EMS) Workers: A NEISS-Work Telephone Interview Survey--New--
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers 
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Studies have reported that EMS workers have higher rates of non-
fatal injuries and illnesses as compared to the general worker 
population. As EMS professionals are tasked with protecting the health 
of the public and treating urgent medical needs, it follows that 
understanding and preventing injuries and illnesses among EMS workers 
will have a benefit reaching beyond the workers to the general public.
    As mandated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Pub. 
L. 91-596), the mission of NIOSH is to conduct research and 
investigations on occupational safety and health. Related to this 
mission, the purpose of this project is to conduct research that will 
provide a detailed description of non-fatal occupational injuries and 
illnesses incurred by EMS workers. This project will bridge a gap of 
limited existing EMS worker injury and illness surveillance identified 
in a 2007 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, (NHTSA) 
report. The project will use two related data sources. The first source 
is data abstracted from medical records of EMS workers treated in a 
nationally stratified sample of emergency departments. These data are 
routinely collected by the occupational supplement to the National 
Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS-Work). The second data 
source, for which NIOSH is seeking OMB approval, is responses to 
telephone interview surveys of the injured and ill EMS workers 
identified within NEISS-Work.
    The proposed telephone interview surveys will supplement NEISS-Work 
data with an extensive description of EMS worker injuries and 
illnesses, including worker characteristics, injury types, injury 
circumstances, injury outcomes, and use of personal protective 
equipment. Previous reports describing occupational injuries and

    The sample size for the telephone interview survey is estimated to 
be approximately 175 EMS workers annually for the proposed four year 
duration of the study. This estimate is based on the number of EMS 
workers identified in previous years of NEISS-Work data and a 50%

an annualized burden estimate of 58 hours. Using the routine NEISS-Work 
data, an analysis of all identified EMS workers will be performed to 
determine if there are any differences between the telephone interview 
responder and non-responder groups.
