legislative mandate to educate and disseminate information about cancer 
prevention, detection, diagnosis, and treatment to a wide variety of 
audiences and organizations, it is beneficial for NCI through its 
Office of Communications and Education (OCE), to pretest NCI

development. This pretesting, or formative evaluation, helps ensure 
that the messages, communication materials, and information services 
created by NCI have the greatest capacity of being received, 
understood, and accepted by their target audiences. Since NCI's OCE

programs and products that OCE and NCI produce. OCE will use a variety 
of qualitative (focus groups, interviews) and quantitative (paper,

formative and customer satisfaction research, allowing NCI to: (1) 
Understand characteristics (attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors) of the 
intended target audience and use this information in the development of 
effective communication tools and strategies; (2) use a feedback loop 
to help refine, revise, and enhance messages, materials, products, and 
programs--ensuring that they have the greatest relevance, utility, 
appropriateness, and impact for/to target audiences; and (3) expend 
limited program resource dollars wisely and effectively. The 
participants may include, but are not limited to, cancer patients, 
their families, the general public, health providers, the media, 
voluntary groups, scientific and medical organizations (affected public 
could include individuals or households; businesses or other for

Local, or Tribal Government).
    OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to 
respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized 
burden hours are 6,600.
