Need and Use of Information Collection: The National Cancer Institute is requesting approval for this revised generic clearance to conduct formative research related to behavioral science theory development and validation for the next three years. Formative research in the area of theory development and validation would provide the basis for developing effective cancer prevention and control strategies, allow for a better understanding of theoretical constructs that influence decisions and actions related to cancer, and ultimately contribute to reducing the U.S. cancer burden. Sub-studies proposed under this generic clearance would involve methodological testing and a standard set of research approaches, including surveys (internet, phone, and paperand-pencil) and focus groups. Respondents would include individuals in the general public, recruited through established online panels or internet/ newspaper advertisements. Development of each study or survey would involve consulting with NCI scientists as well as experts from the behavioral science research community. OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated burden is 2,000 hours per year.
