Project: Screening, Brief Intervention, Brief Treatment and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) Cross-Site Evaluation—New SAMHSA is conducting a cross-site external evaluation of the impact of programs of screening, brief intervention (BI), brief treatment (BT) and referral to treatment on patients presenting at various health care delivery units with a continuum of severity of substance use. SAMHSA’s SBIRT program is a cooperative agreement grant program designed to help States and Tribal Councils expand the continuum of care available for substance misuse and use disorders. The program includes screening, brief intervention, brief treatment and referrals to treatment for persons at risk for dependence on alcohol or drugs. The cross-site evaluation will provide a comprehensive assessment of the effects of SBIRT on patient outcomes, performance site practices, and treatment systems. This information will allow SAMHSA to determine the extent to which SBIRT has met its objectives of implementing a comprehensive system of identification and care to meet the needs of individuals at all points along the substance use continuum. A paper and pencil survey will be administered to practitioners in sites where SBIRT services are being delivered. The practitioner survey is designed to evaluate the implementation of proposed SBIRT models by measuring their penetration and practitioners’ willingness to adopt. Furthermore, the survey will document moderating factors related to practitioner and health care delivery unit characteristics. The 93 question practitioner survey includes collection of demographic information as well as questions that attempt to assess barriers to implementation encountered by the practitioners and to gauge the effectiveness of the training they received. These measures were developed and used by Babor et al. (2005) in their comparable study comparing different implementation strategies for primary care screening and brief intervention programs for hazardous and harmful drinkers. The practitioner survey also includes an instrument developed by Panzano and Roth (2006) to measures an organization’s willingness to adopt new innovative practices.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB 
Review; Comment Request

    Periodically, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 
Administration (SAMHSA) will publish a summary of information 
collection requests under OMB review, in compliance with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35). To request a copy of these 
documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276-1243.

Proposed Project: 2011-2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: 
Methodological Field Tests (OMB No. 0930-0290)-Revision

    The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is a survey of 
the civilian, non-institutionalized population of the United States 12 
years old and older. The data are used to determine the prevalence of 
use of tobacco products, alcohol, illicit substances, and illicit use 
of prescription drugs. The results are used by SAMHSA, ONDCP, Federal 
Government agencies, and other organizations and researchers to 
establish policy, direct program activities, and better allocate 
resources.
    In March 2008, SAMHSA received a 3-year renewal of its generic 
clearance for methodological field tests. This will be a request for 
another renewal of the generic approval to continue methodological 
tests over the next 3 years, with conditions similar to the previous 
clearance. These methodological tests will continue to be designed to 
examine the feasibility, quality, and efficiency of new procedures or 
revisions to existing survey protocol. Specifically, the tests will 
measure the reliability and validity of certain questionnaire sections 
and items through multiple measurements on a set of respondents; assess 
new methods for gaining cooperation and participation of respondents 
with the goal of increasing response and decreasing potential bias in 
the survey estimates; and assess the impact of new sampling techniques 
and technologies on respondent behavior and reporting. Research will

    The next wave of methodological tests will continue to examine ways

sources and effects of nonsampling error on the NSDUH estimates. 
Particular attention will be given to minimizing the impact of design 
changes so that survey data continue to remain comparable over time. If 
these tests provide successful results, current procedures or data 
collection instruments may be revised.
    The number of respondents to be included in each field test will 
vary, depending on the nature of the subject being tested and the 
target population. However, the total estimated response burden is 
8,251 hours. The exact number of subjects and burden hours for each 
test are unknown at this time, but will be clearly outlined in each 
individual submission. The table below, however, describes the 
anticipated burden for each of the major testing activities for which 
generic approval is being tested.
