The information was used to assess the feasibility and cost effectiveness of a publicly funded screening program, describe key outcomes, and guide program expansion. In 2009, CDC received additional funding from Congress and established the expanded Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CRCCP) to increase screening rates in the general population through evidence-based screening provision and screening promotion activities.

Funded sites also plan and implement program activities that promote CRC screening in the general population through policy, systems, community and individual level interventions.

Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing a data collection as part of the ‘‘School Readiness Goals and Head Start Program VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:01 Jan 15, 2013 Jkt 229001 Functioning’’ research project. The purpose of this study is to improve understanding of how local Head Start and Early Head Start programs define, measure, and communicate school readiness goals, and how they use these goals in program planning to improve program functioning. ACF is proposing to use a semi-structured telephone interview protocol to collect information from program directors and other key staff from approximately 60 local grantees and site visit protocols to collect further qualitative information through interviews and/or focus groups with program staff, oversight boards, key stakeholders, and parents in a subset of 12 of these grantees. ACF has contracted with the Urban Institute to collect and analyze the data gathered in the telephone interviews and site visits. Topics to be covered in the telephone interview and site visit protocols include: A description of school readiness goals set by local grantee; the process used to set school readiness goals; contextual factors informing PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 choices made about school readiness goals (e.g., needs of local children and families, program and staff characteristics, and community characteristics); how programs use and analyze data about school readiness goals; how programs report progress on goals; and how school readiness goals and data form program planning and improvement efforts. Respondents: Head Start and Early Head Start program directors and managers closely involved with school readiness goal setting (e.g. education services coordinators); others in leadership positions (e.g. agency directors, center directors, home-based services coordinators or assistant program directors); front-line staff (e.g. Head Start teachers, Early Head Start teachers, home visitors, family service workers, and program specialists); members of Head Start governing bodies and local policy councils; liaisons from local education agencies; and parents with children in Head Start and Early Head Start programs.

Proposed Project

    Colorectal Cancer Screening Program (OMB No. 0920-0745, exp. 6/30/
2013)--Extension--National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and 
Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 
(CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Of cancers affecting both men and women, Colorectal Cancer (CRC) is 
the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. 
Based on scientific evidence which indicates that regular screening is 
effective in reducing CRC incidence and mortality, regular CRC 
screening is now recommended for adults starting at age 50 and 
continuing until age 75 years. Screening tests that are recommended by 
the United States Preventive Services Task Force, and that may be used 
alone or in combination, include fecal occult blood testing (FOBT), 
fecal immunochemical testing (FIT), flexible sigmoidoscopy, and 
colonoscopy.
    In 2005, CDC established a three-year demonstration program, 
subsequently extended to four years, to screen low-income individuals 
50 years of age and older who have no health insurance or inadequate 
health insurance for CRC. The five demonstration sites reported 
information to CDC including de-identified, patient-level demographic, 
screening, diagnostic, treatment, outcome and cost reimbursement data 
(Colorectal Cancer Screening Demonstration Program, OMB No. 0920-0745, 
exp. 7/31/2010). The information was used to assess the feasibility and 
cost effectiveness of a publicly funded screening program, describe key 
outcomes, and guide program expansion.
    In 2009, CDC received additional funding from Congress and 
established the expanded Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CRCCP) to 
increase screening rates in the general population through evidence-
based screening provision and screening promotion activities. All 
funded sites provide CRC screening and follow-up services to low-income 
men and women who are underinsured or uninsured for CRC screening. 
Funded sites also plan and implement program activities that promote 
CRC screening in the general population through policy, systems, 
community and individual level interventions. With expanded CRCCP 
support, the number of sites funded to provide CRC screening services 
increased from five to 26 and the original information collection was 
revised. Changes incorporated through the revision process included an 
increase in the number of respondents; simplification of the clinical 
data collection based on experience with the five demonstration program 
sites;

[[Page 3431]]

discontinuation of the cost reimbursement data collection; addition of 
an activity-based economic data collection; and deletion of the term 
``Demonstration'' from the title. Information currently reported to CDC 
includes program-level activity cost data, and de-identified patient-
level demographic, screening, diagnostic, treatment and outcome data 
(Colorectal Cancer Screening Program, OMB No. 0920-0745, exp. 6/30/
2013).
    CDC plans to request a three-year extension of the current 
approval. No changes are proposed to the content of the information 
collection, reporting procedures for awardees, or the estimated burden 
per respondent. However, the number of funded CRC screening sites will 
increase from 26 to 29.
    Program awardees will continue to implement evidence-based 
interventions to increase population-level screening rates and to 
address disparities in access to CRC screening services.
    Through this program, funded awardees will provide CRC screening 
services to low-income individuals 50 years of age and older who have 
no health insurance or inadequate health insurance for CRC. On average, 
each program awardee is expected to provide services to 375 individuals 
per year. De-identified clinical data elements will be reported to CDC 
electronically. In addition, each awardee will collect and report 
program-level activity-based cost data to CDC through an electronic 
Cost Assessment Tool (CAT). The activity-based cost information allows 
CDC to monitor individual awardees and compare activity-based costs 
across multiple sites and programs. A similar approach has been 
employed for a number of CDC-funded cancer programs (see Economic 
Analysis of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection 
Program, OMB No. 0920-0776, exp. 3/31/2011, and Economic Analysis of 
the National Program of Cancer Registries, OMB No. 0920-0812, exp. 6/
30/2012).
    CDC will use the information collected from Colorectal Cancer 
Screening Program awardees to monitor and evaluate the CRC screening 
program and funded sites; improve the quality of screening and 
diagnostic services for underserved individuals; develop outreach 
strategies to increase screening; and report program results to 
Congress and other legislative authorities. Participation is required 
for all CRCCP awardees. There are no costs to respondents other than 
their time.
