Proposed Project Title: Interim Evaluation of the Bright Futures for Women’s Health and Wellness (BFWHW) Initiative, Emotional Wellness Consumer Tools—NEW. PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Purpose: The purpose of this project is to design and implement a three-year interim evaluation to address initial outcomes for the BFWHW emotional wellness tools targeted at consumers. The project is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administrations (HRSA), Office of Women’s Health (OWH). The evaluation will seek to determine (1) the acceptability of the tools by the target audiences, (2) strategies for ensuring their ongoing use, and (3) the outcomes associated with the use of these tools in three to four selected primary care sites. The evaluation team will work with HRSA OWH and an Expert Committee to identify the questions of interest for the evaluation plan and methodology. There will be two major components— a descriptive/process component focusing on the design and implementation of the program’s intervention and an impact component focusing on the preliminary outcomes of the intervention on the target audiences and their behavioral intentions. Respondents: Female consumers (adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17 and adults 18 and older) who receive services from primary care sites or community service organizations will receive a written survey on site at the time of service. Distributors of the Consumer Tools (e.g., healthcare providers, program staff, and community stakeholders/ organizations) from the three to four selected HRSA-funded program sites will respond to a web-based written survey. Female consumers (adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17 and adults 18 and older) who receive services from primary care sites or community service organizations will be invited to participate in a focus group.

In the United States, homicide and suicide are the second and third leading causes of death, respectively, in the 1–34 year old age group. Unfortunately, public health agencies do not know much more about the problem than the numbers and the sex, race, and age of the victims, all information obtainable from the standard death certificate. Death certificates, however, carry no information about key facts necessary for prevention such as the relationship of the victim and suspect and the circumstances of the deaths, thereby making it impossible to discern anything but the gross contours of the problem. Furthermore, death certificates are typically available 20 months after the completion of a single calendar year. Official publications of national violent death rates, e.g. those in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, rarely use data that is less than two years old. Public health interventions aimed at a moving target last seen two years ago may well miss the mark. Local and Federal criminal justice agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) provide slightly more information about homicides, but they do not routinely collect standardized data about suicides, which are in fact much more common than homicides. The FBI´s Supplemental Homicide Report (SHRs) does collect basic information about the victim-suspect PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 relationship and circumstances related to the homicide. SHRs do not link violent deaths that are part of one incident such as homicide-suicides. It also is a voluntary system in which some 10–20 percent of police departments nationwide do not participate. The FBI´s National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) provides slightly more information than SHRs, but it covers less of the country than SHRs. NIBRS also only provides data regarding homicides. Also, the Bureau of Justice Statistics Reports does not use data that is less than two years old. CDC therefore proposes to continue a state-based surveillance system for violent deaths that will provide more detailed and timely information. It taps into the case records held by medical examiners/coroners, police, and crime labs. Data is collected centrally by each state in the system, stripped of identifiers, and then sent to the CDC. Information is collected from these records about the characteristics of the victims and suspects, the circumstances of the deaths, and the weapons involved. States use standardized data elements and software designed by CDC. Ultimately, this information will guide states in designing programs that reduce multiple forms of violence. Neither victim families nor suspects are contacted to collect this information. It all comes from existing records and is collected by state health department staff or their subcontractors. Health departments incur an average of 2.5 hours per death in identifying the deaths from death certificates, contacting the police and medical examiners to get copies of or to view the relevant records, abstracting all the records, various data processing tasks, various administrative tasks, data utilization, training, communications, etc. This revision is a request to allow 10 new state health departments to be added to the currently funded 17, if funding becomes available. This may bring the total to 27 by the year 2012. E:\FR\FM\13MYN1.SGM 13MYN1
