Proposed Project Poison Center Collaborations for Public Health Emergencies—NEW— National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is requesting a threeyear approval for a new generic information collection request (Generic ICR) plan titled ‘‘Poison Center Collaborations for Public Health Emergencies.’’ CDC’s key partner, the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC), is a national network of 55 poison centers working to prevent and treat poison exposures. The goal for this new Generic ICR is to create a timely mechanism to allow poison centers, in collaboration with CDC, to obtain critical exposure and health information during public health emergencies. This information is not captured during initial poison center calls about triage and treatment of potential poison exposures. Additional data collections are needed quickly to further characterize exposures, risk factors, and illnesses. When a public health emergency of interest to CDC and AAPCC occurs, the CDC and AAPCC hold a meeting to mutually decide whether the incident needs further investigation. For a public health emergency to be selected for callback, adverse health effects must have occurred and a response is needed to prevent further morbidity and mortality. The event must meet the criteria below: (1) The event is a public health emergency causing adverse health effects. (2) Timely data are urgently needed to inform rapid public health action to prevent or reduce injury, disease, or death. (3) The event is characterized by a natural or man-made disaster, contaminated food or water, a new or existing consumer product, or an emerging public health threat. (4) The event has resulted in calls to a poison center, and the poison center agrees to conduct the call-back data collection. (5) The event is domestic. (6) Data collection will be completed in 60 days or less. Trained poison center staff will conduct the call-back telephone survey, after administering consent. E:\FR\FM\12SEN1.SGM 12SEN1
