Center for Scientific Review; Notice of Closed Meetings, 71013-71014 [E8-27785]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 227 / Monday, November 24, 2008 / Notices 52052–52053 and allowed 60 days for public comment. The National Institutes of Health received one comment that was determined to be not relevant to the specific questions stated in the notice. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment. The National Institutes of Health may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, the collection of information that has been extended, revised, or implemented unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Proposed Collection: Title: The National Diabetes Educations Program Comprehensive Evaluation Plan. Type of Information Collection Request: Extension of a currently approved collection (#0925–0552). Need and Use of Information Collection: The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) is a partnership of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and more than 200 public and private organizations. The long-term goals of the NDEP are to improve the treatment and health outcomes of people with diabetes, to promote early diagnosis, and, ultimately, to prevent the onset of diabetes. The NDEP objectives are: (1) To increase awareness of the seriousness of diabetes, its risk factors, and strategies for preventing diabetes and its complications among people at risk for diabetes; (2) to improve understanding about diabetes and its control and to promote better selfmanagement behaviors among people with diabetes; (3) to improve health care providers’ understanding of diabetes and its control and to promote an integrated approach to care; (4) to promote health care policies that improve the quality of and access to diabetes care. Multiple strategies have been devised to address the NDEP objectives. These have been described in the NDEP Strategic Plan and include: (1) Creating partnerships with other organizations concerned about diabetes; (2) developing and implementing awareness and education activities with special emphasis on reaching the racial and ethnic populations disproportionately affected by diabetes; (3) identifying, developing, and disseminating educational tools and resources for the program’s diverse audiences; (4) promoting policies and activities to improve the quality of and access to diabetes care. The NDEP evaluation will document the extent to which the NDEP program has been implemented, and how 71013 successful it has been in meeting program objectives. The evaluation relies heavily on data gathered from existing national surveys such as National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), among others for this information. This generic clearance request is for the collection of additional primary data from NDEP target audiences on some key process and impact measures that are necessary to effectively evaluate the program. Approval is requested for a survey of audiences targeted by the National Diabetes Education Program including people at risk for diabetes, people with diabetes and their families and the public. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Type of Respondents: Adults. The annual reporting burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 3759, Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1; Average Burden Hours Per Response: .153; and Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested: 575. There are no Capital Costs, Operating or Maintenance Costs to report.

Request for Comments: Written comments and/or suggestions from the public and affected agencies are invited on one or more of the following points: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the function of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Evaluate the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
