Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 13549-13550 [2010-6141]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 54 / Monday, March 22, 2010 / Notices 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to the following collection of information, FDA invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of FDA’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology. Focus Groups About Drug Products, as Used by the Food and Drug Administration Focus groups provide an important role in gathering information because they allow for a more in-depth understanding of individuals’ attitudes, beliefs, motivations, and feelings than do quantitative studies. Focus groups serve the narrowly defined need for direct and informal opinion on a specific topic and as a qualitative research tool have three major purposes: • To obtain information that is useful for developing variables and measures for quantitative studies, • To better understand people’s attitudes and emotions in response to topics and concepts, and • To further explore findings obtained from quantitative studies. 13549 FDA will use focus group findings to test and refine its ideas and to help develop messages and other communications, but will generally conduct further research before making important decisions such as adopting new policies and allocating or redirecting significant resources to support these policies. FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Office of the Commissioner, and any other centers or offices conducting focus groups about regulated drug products may need to conduct focus groups on a variety of subjects related to consumer, patient, or healthcare professional perceptions and use of drug products and related materials, including but not limited to, DTC prescription drug promotion, physician labeling of prescription drugs, Medication Guides, OTC drug labeling, emerging risk communications, patient labeling, online sales of medical products, and consumer and professional education. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1.—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN1 No. of Respondents No. of Responses per Respondent 1,440 1 There 1 Hours per Response 1,440 Total Hours 1.75 2,520 are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information. Annually, FDA projects about 20 focus group studies using 160 focus groups with an average of 9 persons per group, and lasting an average of 1.75 hours each. FDA is requesting this burden for unplanned focus groups so as not to restrict the agency’s ability to gather information on public sentiment for its proposals in its regulatory and communications programs.

Funding Opportunity Description Statutory Authority The Indian Health Service (IHS) announces that competitive cooperative agreement applications are now being accepted by the IHS Office of Clinical and Preventive Services (OCPS) for the National Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) Program. This program is authorized under the Snyder Act, 25 U.S.C. 13, and the Indian Health Care Improvement Act, 25 U.S.C. 1602(a)(b)(42)(43). This program is described under 93.933 in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA). There will be only one funding cycle during Fiscal Year (FY) 2010. Background Enhancement of HIV/AIDS testing activities in American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) people is necessary to reduce the incidence of HIV/AIDS in those communities by increasing access to HIV related services, reducing stigma, and making testing routine. This open competition seeks to expand fiscal resources to increase the number of AI/AN with awareness of his/her HIV status. The cooperative agreements will provide routine HIV screening for adults as per 2006 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, and pre- and post-test counseling (when appropriate). Purpose DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Indian Health Service pwalker on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES Office of Clinical and Preventive Services: National HIV Program Announcement Type: Cooperative Agreement. Funding Opportunity Number: HHS– 2010–IHS–OCPS–HIV–0001. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Number: 93.933. Key Dates Application Deadline Date: April 30, 2010. Review Date: May 12, 2010. Anticipated Start Date: June 1, 2010. VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:41 Mar 19, 2010 Jkt 220001 These cooperative agreements will be used to identify best practices to enhance HIV testing, including rapid testing and/or conventional HIV antibody testing, and to provide a more focused effort to address HIV/AIDS prevention in AI/AN populations in the United States. The nature of these projects will require collaboration to: (1) Coordinate activities with the IHS National HIV Program; and (2) submit and share nonpersonally identifiable (NPI) data surrounding HIV/AIDS testing, treatment and education. These agreements are intended to encourage development of sustainable, routine HIV screening programs in Tribal health facilities that are aligned with 2006 CDC HIV screening PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 guidelines (http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/ preview/mmwrhtml/rr5514a1.htm). Key features include streamlined consent and counseling procedures (verbal consent, opt-out), a clear HIV screening policy, identifying and implementing any necessary staff training, community awareness, and a clear follow-up protocol for HIV positive results including linkages to care. Grantees may choose to bundle HIV tests with sexually transmitted diseases (STD) screening. II. Award Information Type of Awards Cooperative Agreement. Estimated Funds Available The total amount of funding identified for the current Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 is approximately $540,000. Competing and continuation awards issued under this announcement are subject to the availability of funds. In the absence of funding, the agency is under no obligation to make additional awards under this announcement. Anticipated Number of Awards Approximately six cooperative agreement (CA) awards will be issued under this program announcement. Projects will be funded for annual budget periods in the amount of approximately $90,000. Project Period This is a 2 year project. Programmatic Involvement Limitations—Only one CA project will be awarded per Tribe, Tribal organization, or intertribal consortium. Proposed activities that cover large populations and/or geographical areas that do not necessarily correspond with current IHS administrative areas are encouraged.
