National Network of Sexually Transmitted Diseases Clinical Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC): Evaluation (OMB Control No. 0920– 0995, Expiration 10/31/2016)— Reinstatement with Change—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP) requests a threeyear approval for this reinstatement with change to the previously OMB approved information collection project entitled, ‘‘Health Professional Application for Training (HPAT) OMB #0920–0995 exp. 10/31/2016’’. The revision request consists of changing the title to ‘‘National Network of Sexually Transmitted Disease Clinical Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC): Evaluation’’, abbreviating the Health Professional Application for Training HPAT form; now called the ‘‘NNPTC HPAT’’. This request also contains the following changes: Elimination of 18 demographic items from the HPAT, addition of 5 demographic items to the HPAT, and addition of 98 evaluation questions to be used in 14 post-course and 90-day follow-up evaluation instruments to monitor and evaluate program outcomes. The Prevention Training Centers (PTCs) offer classroom, web-based, and experiential training, clinical consultation, and capacity building assistance to maintain and enhance the capacity of health care professionals to screen for, diagnose, treat, manage, and prevent STDs. Previously, there has not been a systematic evaluation of the outcomes of the NNPTC program. The PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 136 Number of responses per respondent 1 Average burden per response (in hours) 30/60 CDC’s Funding Opportunity Announcement PS 14–1407, National Network of Sexually Transmitted Diseases Clinical Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC) requires the collection of demographic information on trainees and the collection of national evaluation outcomes. Therefore, the 14 new evaluation forms were needed and the previously approved HPAT registration form was shortened to decrease the burden on respondents. This evaluation will provide the CDC with information to assess the performance of their grantees, and will provide the NNPTC with information to improve program processes and operations in order to improve the quality of STD prevention and treatment, a key public health and evaluation activity promoted by the CDC and DSTDP. The NNPTC HPAT will serve as the standard application and registration form for all NNPTC trainings collecting demographic information such as race, gender, work contact information, profession, functional role, work setting, programmatic focus, and at-risk populations served. NNPTC HPAT data will be used to plan and organize trainings, and determine whether NNPTC trainings are reaching the designated priority audiences: STD experts and primary care providers who serve adolescents, young adults, pregnant women, and men who have sex with men. Evaluation instruments will be used to assess satisfaction with the training, and measure participant changes in knowledge, skills, intentions to change clinical practices, and actual changes in clinical practices. Data will be collected up to three times annually from 4,500 healthcare professionals who provide STD screening, diagnosis, and treatment or provide services to populations at risk of STD and receive NNPTC training or technical assistance. This is a decrease from the origionally approved 7,400 due to a decrease in the number of PTCs and therefore number of healthcare professionals trained. All 4,500 healthcare professionals will complete the NNPTC HPAT registration and all will be asked via two emails to voluntarily complete one evaluation within several days after training (PostCourse Evaluation) and a second E:\FR\FM\08FEN1.SGM 08FEN1 9746 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 25 / Wednesday, February 8, 2017 / Notices evaluation (Long-Term Evaluation) three months after training. A subset of 1,590 is expected to volunteer to complete the Post-Course Evaluation, and a smaller subset of 519 is expected to volunteer to complete the Long-Term Evaluation. The total burden hours for this request is 416 hours compared to the originally approved 617 burden hours. The 3-minute NNPTC HPAT provides an efficient online registration process for all PTCs and takes two minutes less to complete than the previously approved version. The 14 evaluation instruments vary in number of questions based on the intensity of the training. Time to complete the different evaluation instruments ranges from 2 minutes for a one-hour training to 16 minutes for a multi-day training. Burden is calculated for each instrument separately based on number of respondents and number of questions in each instrument. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The estimated annualized burden hours for this data collection are 416 hours as compared to 617 for the previous approval. This reduction in burden is due to the shorter time needed to complete the HPAT (3 minutes versus the previously approved 5 minutes) and the smaller number of estimated respondents (4,500 versus 7,400) since there are now fewer PTCs conducting training. This savings for the HPAT burden is greater than the additional burden created by adding 14 new evaluation instruments since only a subset of the 4,500 respondents will complete the post-course evaluation and 90-day long-term evaluation.

Proposed Project

    National Network of Sexually Transmitted Diseases Clinical 
Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC): Evaluation (OMB Control No. 0920-
0995, Expiration 10/31/2016)--Reinstatement with Change--National 
Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of 
STD Prevention (DSTDP) requests a three-year approval for this 
reinstatement with change to the previously OMB approved information 
collection project entitled, ``Health Professional Application for 
Training (HPAT) OMB #0920-0995 exp. 10/31/2016''. The revision request 
consists of changing the title to ``National Network of Sexually 
Transmitted Disease Clinical Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC): 
Evaluation'', abbreviating the Health Professional Application for 
Training HPAT form; now called the ``NNPTC HPAT''. This request also 
contains the following changes: Elimination of 18 demographic items 
from the HPAT, addition of 5 demographic items to the HPAT, and 
addition of 98 evaluation questions to be used in 14 post-course and 
90-day follow-up evaluation instruments to monitor and evaluate program 
outcomes.
    The Prevention Training Centers (PTCs) offer classroom, web-based, 
and experiential training, clinical consultation, and capacity building 
assistance to maintain and enhance the capacity of health care 
professionals to screen for, diagnose, treat, manage, and prevent STDs. 
Previously, there has not been a systematic evaluation of the outcomes 
of the NNPTC program. The CDC's Funding Opportunity Announcement PS 14-
1407, National Network of Sexually Transmitted Diseases Clinical 
Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC) requires the collection of 
demographic information on trainees and the collection of national 
evaluation outcomes. Therefore, the 14 new evaluation forms were needed 
and the previously approved HPAT registration form was shortened to 
decrease the burden on respondents. This evaluation will provide the 
CDC with information to assess the performance of their grantees, and 
will provide the NNPTC with information to improve program processes 
and operations in order to improve the quality of STD prevention and 
treatment, a key public health and evaluation activity promoted by the 
CDC and DSTDP.
    The NNPTC HPAT will serve as the standard application and 
registration form for all NNPTC trainings collecting demographic 
information such as race, gender, work contact information, profession, 
functional role, work setting, programmatic focus, and at-risk 
populations served. NNPTC HPAT data will be used to plan and organize 
trainings, and determine whether NNPTC trainings are reaching the 
designated priority audiences: STD experts and primary care providers 
who serve adolescents, young adults, pregnant women, and men who have 
sex with men. Evaluation instruments will be used to assess 
satisfaction with the training, and measure participant changes in 
knowledge, skills, intentions to change clinical practices, and actual 
changes in clinical practices.
    Data will be collected up to three times annually from 4,500 
healthcare professionals who provide STD screening, diagnosis, and 
treatment or provide services to populations at risk of STD and receive 
NNPTC training or technical assistance. This is a decrease from the 
origionally approved 7,400 due to a decrease in the number of PTCs and 
therefore number of healthcare professionals trained. All 4,500 
healthcare professionals will complete the NNPTC HPAT registration and 
all will be asked via two emails to voluntarily complete one evaluation 
within several days after training (Post-Course Evaluation) and a 
second

evaluation (Long-Term Evaluation) three months after training. A subset 
of 1,590 is expected to volunteer to complete the Post-Course 
Evaluation, and a smaller subset of 519 is expected to volunteer to 
complete the Long-Term Evaluation. The total burden hours for this 
request is 416 hours compared to the originally approved 617 burden 
hours.
    The 3-minute NNPTC HPAT provides an efficient online registration 
process for all PTCs and takes two minutes less to complete than the 
previously approved version. The 14 evaluation instruments vary in 
number of questions based on the intensity of the training. Time to 
complete the different evaluation instruments ranges from 2 minutes for 
a one-hour training to 16 minutes for a multi-day training. Burden is 
calculated for each instrument separately based on number of 
respondents and number of questions in each instrument.
    There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The 
estimated annualized burden hours for this data collection are 416 
hours as compared to 617 for the previous approval. This reduction in 
burden is due to the shorter time needed to complete the HPAT (3 
minutes versus the previously approved 5 minutes) and the smaller 
number of estimated respondents (4,500 versus 7,400) since there are 
now fewer PTCs conducting training. This savings for the HPAT burden is 
greater than the additional burden created by adding 14 new evaluation 
instruments since only a subset of the 4,500 respondents will complete 
the post-course evaluation and 90-day long-term evaluation.
