AGENCY: The Veterans Health Administration (VHA), Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), is announcing an opportunity for public comment on the proposed collection of certain information by the agency. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, Federal agencies are required to publish notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each extension collection, and allow 60 days for public comment in response to the notice. This notice solicits comments on the information needed for Veterans, Veteran Representatives and health care providers to request reimbursement from the federal government for emergency services at a private institution. DATES: Written comments and recommendations on the proposed collection of information should be received on or before January 26, 2015. ADDRESSES: Submit written comments on the collection of information through Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) at www.Regulations.gov; or Audrey Revere, Office of Regulatory and Administrative Affairs, Veterans Health Administration (10B4), Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20420 or email: Audrey.revere@va.gov.

Titles: Bereaved Family Member Satisfaction Survey. OMB Control Number: 2900–0701. Type of Review: Revision. Abstract: The death rate for Veterans will continue to grow as the number of Veterans 85 years of age and older is projected to increase by 32 percent between 2009 and 2018. Given this trend, the VA will face substantial challenges in providing care to Veterans near the end of life. For example, extensive data from non-VA health care systems demonstrates that physical symptoms like pain, dyspnea and nausea are common in advanced illness, but are under-recognized and inadequately managed. Other studies have found that providers often lack the time and communication skills to discuss goals of care and treatment preferences with patients and families; there is strong evidence that when providers fail to discuss goals of care with patients and families, patients often receive unwanted, aggressive lifesustaining treatment that is not consistent with their preferences. A related problem has been the high incidence of deaths in an acute care setting. As many Veterans approaching end of life may prefer a more quiet and comfortable setting than can be provided in acute care, with improved communications and availability of services much of this end of life care could be shifted to a VA hospice unit or to hospice in the Veteran’s home. The VA has been and continues to be a leader among healthcare systems in the provision of hospice and palliative care. National VA initiatives have been implemented and continue to support the development and expertise of palliative care consult teams. Affected Public: Individuals or Households.
