The authority for this program is the Public Health Service Act, Title XII, Section 1252 (42 U.S.C. 300d–52) as amended by the Children’s Health Act of 2000, sec. 1304, Public Law 106–310, as further amended by the Traumatic Brain Injury Act of 2008, sec. 6, Public Law 110–206. Individuals with TBI present with a host of different symptoms, which exist with varying levels of severity. Comprehensive appropriate care often requires a variety of services such as physical rehabilitation, speech rehabilitation, cognitive rehabilitation, special education accommodations, vocational skills coaching, and independent living skills training, which are located across many state and local agencies. For this reason, individuals with TBI and their family members often have difficulty identifying local providers with the skills and expertise to deliver services that will promote recovery and maximize independence. Per the authorizing legislation, the intent of these programs is to improve access to rehabilitation and other services regarding traumatic brain injury. The HRSA State Implementation Partnership Grants and State Protection and Advocacy Grants support this charge by providing information to individuals with TBI and their families about TBI and making referrals to local providers equipped to meet the unique needs of each survivor. Additionally, these grant programs train providers in various settings to identify and effectively serve individuals with TBI and their families. To date, a number of grantees have collected data independently to determine the impact of their work on individuals with TBI and their families. HRSA proposes uniform data collection surveys for these two categories of activities—information and referral Number of respondents Form name Number of responses per respondent services, and professional training—to assess the extent to which these activities are increasing access to rehabilitation and other services. In addition to providing uniform data across these grant programs, the data will help determine what efforts might improve outreach and provision of services for future projects. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for this Information Collection Request are summarized in the table below. The annual estimate of burden is as follows: Total responses Average burden per response (in hours) Total burden hours Feedback Form for Individuals with TBI and/or their Family Members receiving Information and Referral Services ....

Information Collection Request Title: Organ Donation/Transplant Life Stories (OMB No. 0915–xxxx)—NEW Abstract: HRSA’s Division of Transplantation (DoT) is the primary entity in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) responsible for the Organ Transplant Program established under the National Organ Transplant Act (Pub. L. 98–507, codified at sections 371–377D of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act). Section 377A of the PHS Act authorizes the Secretary E:\FR\FM\13MYN1.SGM 13MYN1 27974 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 92 / Monday, May 13, 2013 / Notices of HHS to establish a public education program to increase awareness about organ donation and the need to provide for an adequate rate of such donations. In brief, DoT’s responsibilities are twofold: (1) To provide oversight and guidance to the national organ transplant system in the U.S. including monitoring the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network and the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients; and (2) to implement a program of public and professional education and outreach aimed at increasing the number of organ donors in this country. Many preventable deaths occur each year because of a staggering imbalance between the supply and demand for donor organs. As of March 2013, the national transplant waiting list exceeded 117,000. In 2011, the total number of deceased and living organ donors was only 14,145. These donors enabled 28,538 patients to receive a transplant while 6,693 died waiting. Without successful interventions to increase donation, the disparity between need and supply is likely to be substantially exacerbated, resulting in more unnecessary deaths. Organdonor.gov is DoT’s primary mechanism for providing the public with information about organ donation. Among the most visited pages on organdonor.gov are the donor and recipient life stories which in a recent evaluation study were shown to raise interest on the topic and, more important, persuade people to register as organ donors. To expand this component of organdonor.gov, DoT proposes to develop an application to give organ recipients, living donors, and donor families the opportunity to voluntarily submit their stories to DoT via a standardized online form. The online form will be posted on organdonor.gov and will collect demographic and contact information, the individual’s donation/transplant story up to 500 words, a high resolution photo, and a signed authorization. The standardized, electronic form will increase HRSA staff’s ability to process those stories more efficiently. In addition to enabling story submission, the online application process will make the donor and recipient life stories posted on the site searchable by the Number of respondents Form name Responses per respondent public to enhance public viewing and understanding of the organ donation process. Submission of a story and completion of the form is voluntary. Overall, this application has the potential to strengthen DoT’s outreach efforts and increase organ donation registration in the United States. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

    Abstract: HRSA's Division of Transplantation (DoT) is the primary 
entity in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) responsible 
for the Organ Transplant Program established under the National Organ 
Transplant Act (Pub. L. 98-507, codified at sections 371-377D of the 
Public Health Service (PHS) Act). Section 377A of the PHS Act 
authorizes the Secretary

of HHS to establish a public education program to increase awareness 
about organ donation and the need to provide for an adequate rate of 
such donations. In brief, DoT's responsibilities are two-fold: (1) To 
provide oversight and guidance to the national organ transplant system 
in the U.S. including monitoring the Organ Procurement and 
Transplantation Network and the Scientific Registry of Transplant 
Recipients; and (2) to implement a program of public and professional 
education and outreach aimed at increasing the number of organ donors 
in this country. Many preventable deaths occur each year because of a 
staggering imbalance between the supply and demand for donor organs. As 
of March 2013, the national transplant waiting list exceeded 117,000. 
In 2011, the total number of deceased and living organ donors was only 
14,145. These donors enabled 28,538 patients to receive a transplant 
while 6,693 died waiting. Without successful interventions to increase 
donation, the disparity between need and supply is likely to be 
substantially exacerbated, resulting in more unnecessary deaths.
    Organdonor.gov is DoT's primary mechanism for providing the public 
with information about organ donation. Among the most visited pages on 
organdonor.gov are the donor and recipient life stories which in a 
recent evaluation study were shown to raise interest on the topic and, 
more important, persuade people to register as organ donors. To expand 
this component of organdonor.gov, DoT proposes to develop an 
application to give organ recipients, living donors, and donor families 
the opportunity to voluntarily submit their stories to DoT via a 
standardized online form. The online form will be posted on 
organdonor.gov and will collect demographic and contact information, 
the individual's donation/transplant story up to 500 words, a high 
resolution photo, and a signed authorization. The standardized, 
electronic form will increase HRSA staff's ability to process those 
stories more efficiently. In addition to enabling story submission, the 
online application process will make the donor and recipient life 
stories posted on the site searchable by the public to enhance public 
viewing and understanding of the organ donation process. Submission of 
a story and completion of the form is voluntary. Overall, this 
application has the potential to strengthen DoT's outreach efforts and 
increase organ donation registration in the United States.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the 
information requested. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and 
systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and 
review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise 
disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this ICR are summarized in the table below.
