Proposed Project Assessing the Adoption and Utility of National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) Tools and Resources for Healthcare Professionals and Health Education Facilitators—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Diabetes is one of the nation’s leading causes of death and disability. An estimated 25.8 million children and adults (of whom 7.0 million are undiagnosed) have diabetes and are at risk for disabling and life-threatening complications, such as heart attack and stroke, and kidney, eye, and nerve disease. Research shows that Type 2 diabetes, and much of the illness and premature death caused by diabetes, can be prevented or delayed. The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) is a joint program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health. The NDEP develops, disseminates, and supports the adoption of evidence-based, culturally and linguistically appropriate tools and resources that emphasize the importance of controlling blood glucose levels, blood pressure, and blood lipids, PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Total burden (in hrs.) as well as carrying out other preventive care practices in a timely manner to improve health outcomes and overall quality of life. In 2012 and 2013, CDC/NDEP collaborated with relevant partners to update two major diabetes education resources: ‘‘New Beginnings: A Discussion Guide for Living Well with Diabetes’’ (hereafter referred to as New Beginnings), and ‘‘Working Together to Manage Diabetes: A Guide and Toolkit for Pharmacy, Podiatry, Optometry, and Dentistry’’ (hereafter referred to as the PPOD Guide and Toolkit). New Beginnings was developed for diabetes educators, health educators, health ministers, lay health workers and others who facilitate discussion groups about diabetes self-management. The discussion guide uses a storytelling approach to facilitate discussions focused on the social-emotional impact of diabetes. Through story-telling, the guide teaches skills related to goal setting, building self-efficacy, managing stress, problem solving, and communication. New Beginnings has been revised to make it a more accessible and flexible resource that can be adapted for use in diabetes selfmanagement education classes and in other settings. The PPOD Guide and Toolkit are targeted to health care providers in pharmacy, podiatry, optometry, and dentistry. The PPOD Guide and Toolkit are designed to promote a collaborative, team-based approach to comprehensive diabetes care. Both resources are being promoted to key target audiences in 2014. In order to understand how target audiences use the resources and apply the recommended diabetes control strategies, CDC plans to conduct a series E:\FR\FM\30APN1.SGM 30APN1 24439 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 83 / Wednesday, April 30, 2014 / Notices of surveys that will assess adoption, use, and satisfaction with the resources.

CDC is requesting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to collect data over a threeyear period that will be used to (1) assess the utility of new measures developed or adapted to collect information related to this new intervention (PrEP) and (2) evaluate community contextual factors that may impact the acceptability and successful introduction of a new HIV prevention method. The project will be conducted in communities in each of four cities where PrEP has recently become available through a local community health center. Once per year for three years, two surveys will be conducted: (1) A community-based survey to be administered to 40 persons per city approached in public venues in the catchment areas of the PrEP clinics, and (2) a key stakeholder survey to be administered to 10 community HIV leaders nominated by PrEP clinic staff and HIV community-based organizations in the clinic communities.

Proposed Project

    Assessing the Adoption and Utility of National Diabetes Education 
Program (NDEP) Tools and Resources for Healthcare Professionals and 
Health Education Facilitators--New--National Center for Chronic Disease 
Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Diabetes is one of the nation's leading causes of death and 
disability. An estimated 25.8 million children and adults (of whom 7.0 
million are undiagnosed) have diabetes and are at risk for disabling 
and life-threatening complications, such as heart attack and stroke, 
and kidney, eye, and nerve disease. Research shows that Type 2 
diabetes, and much of the illness and premature death caused by 
diabetes, can be prevented or delayed. The National Diabetes Education 
Program (NDEP) is a joint program of the Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health. The NDEP 
develops, disseminates, and supports the adoption of evidence-based, 
culturally and linguistically appropriate tools and resources that 
emphasize the importance of controlling blood glucose levels, blood 
pressure, and blood lipids, as well as carrying out other preventive 
care practices in a timely manner to improve health outcomes and 
overall quality of life.
    In 2012 and 2013, CDC/NDEP collaborated with relevant partners to 
update two major diabetes education resources: ``New Beginnings: A 
Discussion Guide for Living Well with Diabetes'' (hereafter referred to 
as New Beginnings), and ``Working Together to Manage Diabetes: A Guide 
and Toolkit for Pharmacy, Podiatry, Optometry, and Dentistry'' 
(hereafter referred to as the PPOD Guide and Toolkit). New Beginnings 
was developed for diabetes educators, health educators, health 
ministers, lay health workers and others who facilitate discussion 
groups about diabetes self-management. The discussion guide uses a 
storytelling approach to facilitate discussions focused on the social-
emotional impact of diabetes. Through story-telling, the guide teaches 
skills related to goal setting, building self-efficacy, managing 
stress, problem solving, and communication. New Beginnings has been 
revised to make it a more accessible and flexible resource that can be 
adapted for use in diabetes self-management education classes and in 
other settings. The PPOD Guide and Toolkit are targeted to health care 
providers in pharmacy, podiatry, optometry, and dentistry. The PPOD 
Guide and Toolkit are designed to promote a collaborative, team-based 
approach to comprehensive diabetes care. Both resources are being 
promoted to key target audiences in 2014.
    In order to understand how target audiences use the resources and 
apply the recommended diabetes control strategies, CDC plans to conduct 
a series

of surveys that will assess adoption, use, and satisfaction with the 
resources. Respondents for the PPOD Guide and toolkit assessment will 
include health care providers in the private sector, state and local 
government, and federal government. Respondents for the New Beginnings 
assessment will include health education facilitators in the private 
sector and state and local government. CDC will coordinate the 
information collection and assessment activities with events and 
opportunities sponsored by professional organizations, and CDC-
sponsored Webinars.
    Office of Budget and Management (OMB) approval is requested for one 
year. All information will be collected electronically. Survey findings 
will be used to guide further improvements to the resources, make 
adjustments to promotional and educational strategies, and inform CDC's 
technical assistance related to diabetes education. Participation in 
the surveys is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other 
than their time.
