Proposed Data Collections Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations, 67180-67181 [E8-26988]

Download as PDF 67180 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 220 / Thursday, November 13, 2008 / Notices assistance programs for awards that establish a Federal interest on real property. Currently, there is no regulatory requirement for real property reporting. The related regulatory requirement is being developed by OMB and will be included in 2 CFR part 45. Comment 11: The team received 2 comments from agencies and grantee organizations concerning whether legislative requirements will take precedence over RPSR reporting requirements. Response: If there is a statutory or regulatory basis for the agency’s requirements, then those requirements take precedence to the report. Comment 12: The team received 1 comment questioning whether ‘‘Federal interest’’ refers to real property and improvements acquired with Federal funds, and whether such interest would continue to the end of any use restrictions. Response: Yes, Federal interest in real property is obtained by virtue of the use of Federal funding to acquire or improve the property and, for real property donated as required cost sharing or matching, unless excluded by statute or award terms. The related award instrument should specify the terms and duration of the Federal interest. Comment 13: The team received 1 comment questioning the need for the Federal Government to impose a reporting requirement extending beyond the grant period on property donated to the Federal Government. Response: The government acquires an interest in the total project, including any property recipients donate to the project as required cost sharing or matching. Through such donation, the government acquires a financial interest in the property, the value of which at any given time is the product of: a. The Federal share of the project costs under the award; and b. The current value of the property. That interest remains until the government releases its interest in the property. Comment 14: The team received 1 comment questioning whether ‘‘Tax Credits’’ are Federal or not. Response: This is a legal question that individual agencies will need to determine. Comment 15: The team received 1 comment questioning whether agencies will need to report on improvements to real property in which the Federal ownership is in question. For example: improvements to real property erected on Indian trust and allotted lands. B. Annual Reporting Burden This report will be used by Federal agencies to collect information related to real property when required by a Federal financial assistance award. Since this report will be used primarily for reporting related to Federal financial assistance awards, we are providing a burden estimate for one respondent. Respondents: Assistance recipients. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 4 (per submission). Estimated Cost: There is no expected cost to the respondents or to OMB. Number of responses per respondent Number of respondents Instrument Response: This is a legal question that should be vetted by agency attorneys. Comment 16: The team received 17 comments concerning the clarity of the instructions. Response: Where necessary, the team revised the instruction language to clarify the type of data requested. Comment 17: The team received 5 comments on the burden estimate for the report. Response: The team reconsidered and revised the burden estimate. Comment 18: The team received 5 general comments not requiring action or a response.

These facilities are known as trauma centers and are classified from Level I to Level IV. The risk for death of a severely injured person is 25% lower if the patient receives care at a Level I trauma center. However, not all patients require the services of a Level I trauma center; proper triage will ensure that patients who are injured less severely will be transported to a closer emergency department that is capable of managing their injuries. In an effort to encourage use of improved triage procedures, CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) worked with experts and partner organizations to develop the 2006 Field Triage Decision Scheme. In support of the 2006 Field Triage Decision Scheme, NCIPC developed a multi-media toolkit aimed at EMS professionals. The toolkit includes A Guide to the Field Triage Decision Scheme: The National Trauma Triage Protocol, a poster, CD–ROM, and pocket card to help EMS providers, planners, and administrators effectively train others and use the Decision Scheme criteria within their own systems.

Proposed Project

    Evaluation of the Field Triage Decision Scheme: The National Trauma 
Triage Protocol--New--Division of Injury Response (DIR), National 
Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The ``Field Triage Decision Scheme: The National Trauma Triage 
Protocol'' educational initiative was developed to help emergency 
medical services (EMS) professionals (administrators, medical 
directors, trauma system leadership, and providers) learn about and 
implement the revised Field Triage Decision Scheme. The Decision Scheme 
is intended to be the foundation for the development of local and 
regional field triage protocols.
    In the United States, injury is the leading cause of death for 
persons aged 1-44 years. EMS professionals have a substantial impact on 
care of the injured and on public health. At an injury scene, EMS 
professionals determine the severity of injury, initiate medical 
management, and identify the most appropriate facility to which the 
patient should be transported. This destination decision is made 
through a process called field triage. Certain hospitals have 
additional expertise, resources, and equipment to treat severely 
injured patients. These facilities are known as trauma centers and are 
classified from Level I to Level IV. The risk for death of a severely 
injured person is 25% lower if the patient receives care at a Level I 
trauma center. However, not all patients require the services of a 
Level I trauma center; proper triage will ensure that patients who are 
injured less severely will be transported to a closer emergency 
department that is capable of managing their injuries.
    In an effort to encourage use of improved triage procedures, CDC's 
National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) worked with 
experts and partner organizations to develop the 2006 Field Triage 
Decision Scheme. In support of the 2006 Field Triage Decision Scheme, 
NCIPC developed a multi-media toolkit aimed at EMS professionals. The 
toolkit includes A Guide to the Field Triage Decision Scheme: The 
National Trauma Triage Protocol, a poster, CD-ROM, and pocket card to 
help EMS providers, planners, and administrators effectively train 
others and use the Decision Scheme criteria within their own systems.
    After the national distribution, NCIPC will conduct an online 
survey of EMS professionals who have received a toolkit to assess the 
short-term impact of the communication initiative directed at EMS 
professionals about field triage procedures. Specifically, the survey 
will assess how many EMS professionals who received a copy of the 
Decision Scheme are using it, how EMS professionals have used the 
Decision Scheme and accompanying toolkit materials, how the materials 
have been used to educate others, what EMS professionals learned from 
the materials, and how the Decision Scheme changed EMS professional's 
triage practices. Survey results will be used to identify the impact 
and applicability of the Decision Scheme and toolkit materials for EMS 
professionals.
    NCIPC will also conduct focus groups with a segment of the survey 
respondents in order to have them elaborate on data submitted through 
the survey. These group interviews will focus on the extent the 
Decision Scheme is being used, how it is being implemented, self-
reported changes in knowledge, and perceived impact on treatment of 
trauma patients. There are no costs to respondents other than their 
time.
