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. There is no cost to respondents other than their time.

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.

Proposed Project

    Formative Research on Lung Cancer Screening--New--Division of 
Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC), National Center for Chronic 
Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    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. Eight in-person focus groups involving an average of nine 
health care consumers will be conducted in each year of the study. 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.
    There are no costs to respondents except their time. The total 
estimated annualized burden hours are 193.
