Proposed Project Improving the Impact of Laboratory Practice Guidelines: A New Paradigm for Metrics—Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute—NEW —Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services (CSELS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background and Brief Description The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is funding three 5-year projects collectively entitled ‘‘Improving the Impact of Laboratory Practice Guidelines: A New Paradigm for Metrics’’. An ‘‘LPG’’ is defined as written recommendations for voluntary, standardized approaches for medical laboratory testing that takes into account processes for test selection, sample procurement and processing, analytical methods, and results reporting for effective diagnosis and management of disease and health conditions. LPGs may be disseminated to, and used by, laboratorians and clinicians to assist with test selection and test result interpretation. The overall purpose of these cooperative agreements is to increase the effectiveness of LPGs by defining measures and collecting information to inform better LPG creation, revision, dissemination, promotion, uptake, and impact on clinical testing and public health. The project will explore how these processes and their impediments and facilitators differ among various intended users of LPGs. Through this demonstration project, CDC seeks to understand how to customize LPG creation and promotion to better serve these intended users of LPGs. An important goal is to help organizations that sponsor the development of LPGs create a sustainable approach for continuous quality improvement to evaluate and improve an LPG’s impact through better collection of information. The CDC selected three organizations that currently create and disseminate LPGs to support activities under a cooperative agreement funding mechanism to improve the impact of their LPGs. The American Society for Microbiology (ASM), the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI), and the College of American Pathologists (CAP), will each use their LPGs as models to better understand how to improve uptake and impact of these and future LPGs. Only the CLSI submission will be described in this notice. Specifically, the CLSI project will address two LPGs that are important to clinical testing and have a high public health impact: POCT12, Point-of-Care Blood Glucose Testing in Acute and Chronic Care Facilities and POCT13, Glucose Monitoring in Settings without Laboratory Support. These LPGs provide guidance and recommendations for personnel monitoring patient glucose levels at sites that have access to a hospital laboratory and at locations, such as physician offices or nursing E:\FR\FM\19JNN1.SGM 19JNN1
