Proposed Project Practice Patterns Related to Opioid Use During Pregnancy and Lactation— New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Over the past decade, the prevalence of maternal opioid use during pregnancy has steadily increased. The use of opioids or other psychoactive substances, either by illicit abuse or by nonmedical abuse of prescription opioids, increases the risks for health and social problems for both mother and infant. For example, maternal substance abuse during pregnancy increases the risk of preterm birth, low birth weight, perinatal death, and neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). For many women, and some at-risk women in particular, prenatal visits may be the only time they routinely see a physician. Because obstetrician-gynecologists (OB/GYNs) are the principal health care providers for women, OB/GYNs are well situated to screen for substance use and to treat or encourage cessation of substance use during pregnancy. Thus, it is important to understand current provider knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding maternal opioid use. CDC, in collaboration with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), plans to conduct a survey to address this gap in knowledge. Survey respondents will be ACOG Fellows and Junior Fellows who have a current medical license and are in medical practice focused on women’s health. ACOG is separated into 11 districts, one of which represents OB/ GYN members who are in the U.S. military. The remaining 10 ACOG districts correspond to geographic regions that encompass the entire United States and Canada. Survey invitations will be sent to a quasirandom sample of ACOG members in each district. CDC and ACOG estimate that 1,500 individuals will be contacted in order to obtain a study target of 600 respondents. The initial invitation will be distributed by email with instructions on completing a web-based version of the questionnaire. Three to four months after the initial invitation, a paper version of the questionnaire will be E:\FR\FM\31MRN1.SGM 31MRN1 18631 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 62 / Thursday, March 31, 2016 / Notices distributed to individuals who have not completed the online version. The estimated number of respondents for the full web-based or paper questionnaire is 420 and the estimated burden per response is 15 minutes. Approximately six weeks after the second recruitment attempt, ACOG will distribute a short version of the questionnaire to any nonresponders. The estimated number of responses for the short version of the questionnaire is 180 and the estimated No information will be collected about individual patients. Survey administration and data management will be conducted by ACOG, and participation is voluntary. De-identified response data will be shared with CDC for analysis. Findings will be used to create recommendations for educational programs and patient care. There are no costs to participants other than their time. burden per response is 5 minutes. An overall 40% response rate is expected. The survey will collect information about provider attitudes and beliefs regarding maternal opioid use, their screening and referral practices for pregnant or postpartum patients, barriers to screening and treating pregnant and postpartum patients for opioid use, and resources that are needed to improve treatment and referral.

Background and Brief Description CDC is requesting a reinstatement with change of the information collect PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 project assigned OMB Control Number 0920–1074, formerly entitled ‘‘Annual Survey of Colorectal Cancer Control Activities Conducted by States and Tribal Organizations.’’ In the previous OMB approval period, information collection consisted of an annual grantee survey. In the next OMB approval period, information collection will consist of a redesigned survey and a new clinic-level information collection. The number of respondents will increase and the total estimated annualized burden will increase. Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the United States. CRC screening has been shown to reduce incidence of and death from the disease. Screening for CRC can detect disease early when treatment is more effective and prevent cancer by finding and removing precancerous polyps. Of individuals diagnosed with early stage CRC, more than 90% live five or more years. Despite strong evidence supporting screening, only 65% of adults currently report being up-to-date with CRC screening as recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, with more than 22 million age-eligible adults estimated to be untested. To reduce CRC morbidity, mortality, and associated costs, use of CRC screening tests must be increased among ageeligible adults with the lowest CRC screening rates.

Lactation--New--National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and

(CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Over the past decade, the prevalence of maternal opioid use during 
pregnancy has steadily increased. The use of opioids or other 
psychoactive substances, either by illicit abuse or by nonmedical abuse 
of prescription opioids, increases the risks for health and social 
problems for both mother and infant. For example, maternal substance 
abuse during pregnancy increases the risk of preterm birth, low birth 
weight, perinatal death, and neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). For 
many women, and some at-risk women in particular, prenatal visits may 
be the only time they routinely see a physician. Because obstetrician-
gynecologists (OB/GYNs) are the principal health care providers for 
women, OB/GYNs are well situated to screen for substance use and to 
treat or encourage cessation of substance use during pregnancy. Thus, 
it is important to understand current provider knowledge, attitudes, 
and practices regarding maternal opioid use.
    CDC, in collaboration with the American College of Obstetricians 
and Gynecologists (ACOG), plans to conduct a survey to address this gap 
in knowledge. Survey respondents will be ACOG Fellows and Junior 
Fellows who have a current medical license and are in medical practice 
focused on women's health. ACOG is separated into 11 districts, one of 
which represents OB/GYN members who are in the U.S. military. The 
remaining 10 ACOG districts correspond to geographic regions that 
encompass the entire United States and Canada. Survey invitations will 
be sent to a quasi-random sample of ACOG members in each district.
    CDC and ACOG estimate that 1,500 individuals will be contacted in 
order to obtain a study target of 600 respondents. The initial 
invitation will be distributed by email with instructions on completing 
a web-based version of the questionnaire. Three to four months after 
the initial invitation, a paper version of the questionnaire will be

distributed to individuals who have not completed the online version. 
The estimated number of respondents for the full web-based or paper

ACOG will distribute a short version of the questionnaire to any non-
responders. The estimated number of responses for the short version of 
the questionnaire is 180 and the estimated burden per response is 5

    The survey will collect information about provider attitudes and 
beliefs regarding maternal opioid use, their screening and referral 
practices for pregnant or postpartum patients, barriers to screening 
and treating pregnant and postpartum patients for opioid use, and 
resources that are needed to improve treatment and referral.
    No information will be collected about individual patients. Survey

participation is voluntary. De-identified response data will be shared 
with CDC for analysis.
    Findings will be used to create recommendations for educational
