Proposed Project Assessing the Adoption and Utility of National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) Tools and Resources for Health Care 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Average burden per response (in hours) Number of responses per respondent 3,200 400 1 1 20/60 5/60 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. 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. 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. OMB approval is requested for one year. All information will be collected electronically. Participation in the surveys is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 233.
