Proposed Data Collections Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations, 9923-9924 [2013-03196]

Download as PDF 9923 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 29 / Tuesday, February 12, 2013 / Notices This project proposes to continue collecting information on individuals with ALS which can be combined with information obtained from existing sources of information and add additional optional risk factor surveys. This combined data will become the National ALS Registry and will be used to provide more accurate estimates of the incidence and prevalence of disease as well as the demographic characteristics of the cases. Information obtained from the surveys will be used to better characterize potential risk factors for ALS which will lead to further in-depth studies. The existence of the Web site has been advertised by ATSDR and advocacy groups such as the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association (ALSA) and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). There are between 15,000 and 30,000 individuals living with ALS at any given time. In addition, approximately 6,000 people are diagnosed with ALS each year and we expect about onequarter of them will participate in the registry. Because an advantage to registration is participating in the surveys, we expect the one time surveys, and the twice yearly survey participation rate will be 50%. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Number of respondents Type of respondent Form name Person with ALS ................

Background and Brief Description Substantial evidence demonstrates the social, economic, and health benefits of breastfeeding for both the mother and infant as well as for society in general. Breastfeeding mothers have lower risks of breast and ovarian cancers and type 2 diabetes, and breastfeeding better protects infants against infections, chronic diseases like diabetes and obesity, and even childhood leukemia and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). However, the groups that are at higher risk for diabetes, obesity, and poor health overall, persistently have the lowest breastfeeding rates.

PO 00000 Average burden per response (hours) Sfmt 4703 Health professionals recommend at least 12 months of breastfeeding, and Healthy People 2020 establishes specific national breastfeeding goals. In addition to increasing overall rates, a significant public health priority in the United States (U.S.) is to reduce variation in breastfeeding rates across population subgroups. Although CDC surveillance data indicate that breastfeeding initiation rates in the U.S. are climbing, rates for duration and exclusivity continue to lag, and significant disparities in breastfeeding rates persist between African-American and white women. The health care system is one of the most important and effective settings to improve breastfeeding initiation rates because hospital practices strongly influence infant feeding outcomes. In 2003, CDC convened a panel of experts in surveillance and monitoring of hospital practices related to breastfeeding to identify the most effective way for CDC to address the urgent public health need for nationally representative data on these practices. The Expert Panel’s consensus recommendation was to establish an ongoing, national system to monitor and evaluate hospital practices related to breastfeeding among all facilities that routinely provide intrapartum care in the United States. In response to this input, CDC created the first national survey of Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (known as the mPINC Survey) in health care facilities (hospitals and free-standing birth centers).

Proposed Project

    Assessment of a Comprehensive Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) 
Clinic-Based Intervention to Promote Patients' Health and Reduce 
Transmission Risk--New--National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, 
STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    CDC is requesting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to 
collect data that will be used to evaluate an HIV clinic-based 
intervention to increase the number of HIV patients who (1) have 
undetectable levels of HIV in their blood, (2) adhere optimally to 
antiretroviral therapy (ART), (3) attend clinic regularly for primary 
care, and (4) practice safer sex. These are objectives of the National 
HIV/AIDS Strategy and goals of the strategic plan of the Division of 
HIV/AIDS Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
    The project will be conducted at six HIV clinics in the United 
States. This proposed data collection will occur over 3 years.
    The intervention that is part of this project focuses primarily on 
HIV patients who have a detectable viral load, i.e., their viral load 
is not as low as it can be and is not fully controlled. The 
intervention components include: (1) Brief counseling from medical 
providers during primary care visits informed by a behavioral screener 
completed by patients; (2) a computer-based intervention (CBI) in which 
patients see short videos of HIV medical providers (not their own 
providers) talking about the importance of regular clinic attendance, 
adherence to ART, and safer sex; and (3) one-on-one counseling from a 
prevention specialist if needed.
    The following data will be collected in this project:
     A data manager at each clinic will electronically transmit 
patient clinical data to CDC using a unique study identification code 
as the only means of identifying a patient's data. The data files sent 
to CDC will not contain any medical record numbers, names, or social 
security numbers. The information will be encrypted and stored in a 
secure CDC server. The data

collected from patients include (1) a behavioral screener self-
administered by patients each time they have a primary care visit. 
Patients complete the screener in the waiting room before seeing their 
primary care provider. (2) CBI assessment items on demographic factors, 
clinic attendance, ART status, ART adherence, and sexual risk behavior 
that are completed before patients see the CBI videos. Patients with 
detectable viral loads will be asked to do the CBI three times, spaced 
approximately three months apart. Patients' CBI responses are not 
shared with their clinic providers. (3) On a quarterly basis, 50 
patients at each clinic will be asked to complete a brief exit survey 
after their medical exam, asking about topics that the provider may 
have discussed with them at their medical visit (e.g., adherence, 
clinic attendance).
     Data collected from primary care medical providers 
includes a quarterly survey asking them to indicate the types of 
topics/issues they discussed with their HIV patients.

There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
