Proposed Project Evaluation of Hospital Preparedness for Public Health Emergencies and Mass Causality Events Project—New— National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Number of responses per respondent Number of respondents Type of respondent Background and Brief Description Hospital preparedness for responding to public health emergencies including mass casualty incidents and epidemics have become a major national challenge. Following the World Trade Center attack of September 11, Hurricane Katrina of 2005, and the 2011 Alabama tornadoes, there is continued and heightened interest of using surveys to assess hospital readiness for various disasters and mass casualty incidents. Current patterns in terrorist activity increase the potential for civilian casualties from explosions. Explosions, particularly in confined spaces, can inflict severe multisystem injuries on numerous patients and produce unique challenges to health care providers and the systems that support them. The U.S. healthcare system and its civilian healthcare providers have minimal experience in treating patients with explosion-related injuries and deficiencies in response capability could result in increased morbidity and mortality and increased stress and fear in the community. Additionally, the surge of patients after an explosion typically occurs within minutes of the event and can quickly overwhelm PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 nearby hospital resources. This potential for many casualties and an immediate surge of patients may stress and limit the ability of EMS systems, hospitals, and other health care facilities to care for critically injured victims. CDC requests a 6-month Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to collect readiness and preparedness data. The purpose of this project will be to (1) develop and pilot an interview tool to assess hospital readiness for a rapid surge of large numbers of casualties; (2) develop minimum standards into the assessment tool to enable a review or an evaluation of hospital readiness and (3) develop strategies for dissemination and implementation of the interview tool. A national sample of randomly selected hospitals will be selected for participation. Four hundred Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) from sampled hospitals will be mailed an introductory letter, contacted by telephone a few days later and asked if the hospital’s emergency preparedness coordinator/ manager can complete the survey. The time to read and respond to the introductory letter is expected to take 17 minutes. The emergency preparedness coordinator/manager will complete the main survey online using the survey Web site with a goal of 320 completed surveys. CDC estimated the total time required to complete the survey as two hours, including reading the instructions. The survey covers hospital preparedness efforts across departments, number of staff, participation in training and exercises, agreements with other responders, and hospital characteristics. After data are gathered from the survey, responses will be compiled, analyzed and summarized. The results will be used to develop an implementation manual, training E:\FR\FM\30APN1.SGM 30APN1

Proposed Project

    Community Context Matters Study--New--National Center for HIV/AIDS, 
Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The daily use of specific antiretroviral medications by persons 
without human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, but at high risk 
of sexual or injection exposure to HIV has been shown to be a safe and 
effective HIV prevention method. The Food and Drug Administration 
approved the use of Truvada[supreg] for preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) 
in July 2012 and CDC has issued clinical practice guidelines for its 
use. With approximately 50,000 new HIV infections each year, increasing 
rates of infection for young MSM, and continuing severe disparities in 
HIV infection among African-American men and women, incorporation of 
PrEP into HIV prevention is important. However, as a new prevention 
tool in very early stages of introduction and use, there is much we 
need to learn about how to implement PrEP in a real world setting and 
the need to develop and validate new measurement tools to capture this 
information.
    CDC is requesting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to 
collect data over a three-year 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.

[[Page 24440]]

Both surveys will collect data on the demographics of the participants, 
knowledge of PrEP, misinformation about PrEP, and attitudes about it. 
The neighborhood survey will also include questions about basic HIV 
knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs as well as information about sexual 
and drug use behaviors that are indications for PrEP use. For the 
stakeholder survey, additional questions will be included about type of 
organization where they work and organizational experience with PrEP.
    Surveys will be administered face-to-face by trained, local 
interviewers.
    There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
