As part of its effort to fulfill its mission, AHRQ, in collaboration with the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Tricare Management Activity, developed TeamSTEPPS® (Team Strategies and Tools for Enhancing Performance and Patient Safety) to provide an evidencebased suite of tools and strategies for training teamwork-based patient safety to health care professionals. TeamSTEPPS includes multiple toolkits which are all tied to, or are variants of, the core curriculum. In addition to the core curriculum, TeamSTEPPS resources have been developed for primary care, rapid response systems, long-term care, and patients with limited English proficiency. The main objective of the TeamSTEPPS program is to improve patient safety by training health care staff in various teamwork, communication, and patient safety concepts, tools, and techniques and ultimately helping to build national capacity for supporting teamwork-based patient safety efforts in health care organizations. Created in 2007, AHRQ’s National Implementation Program has trained Master Trainers who have stimulated the use and adoption of TeamSTEPPS in health care delivery systems. These individuals were trained using the TeamSTEPPS core curriculum at regional training centers across the U.S. AHRQ has also provided technical E:\FR\FM\27JYN1.SGM 27JYN1 34955 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 143 / Thursday, July 27, 2017 / Notices assistance and consultation on implementing TeamSTEPPS and has developed user networks, various educational venues and other channels of learning for continued support and the improvement of teamwork in health care. Since the inception of the National Implementation Program, AHRQ has trained more than 8,000 participants to serve as TeamSTEPPS Master Trainers. Most of the participants in these training programs come from hospital settings, because the TeamSTEPPS core curriculum is most aligned with that context. Given the success of the National Implementation Program in hospital settings, AHRQ launched an effort to provide TeamSTEPPS training to primary care health professionals using the TeamSTEPPS in Primary Care version of the curriculum, which is now referred to as ‘‘TeamSTEPPS for OfficeBased Care.’’ Under this new initiative, primary care practice facilitators will be trained through online instruction. Upon completion of the course, these individuals will be Master Trainers who will train the staff at primary care practices and implement or support the implementation of TeamSTEPPS tools and strategies in primary care practices. As part of this initiative, AHRQ seeks to conduct an evaluation of the TeamSTEPPS for Office-Based Care training program. This evaluation seeks to understand the effectiveness of the TeamSTEPPS for Office-Based Care training and how trained practice facilitators implement TeamSTEPPS in primary care practices. This research has the following goals: (1) Conduct a formative assessment of the TeamSTEPPS for Office-Based Care training program to determine what revisions and improvement should be made to the training and how it is delivered, and (2) Identify how trained participants use and implement the TeamSTEPPS tools and resources in primary care settings. This study is being conducted by AHRQ through its contractor, the Health Research & Educational Trust and its subcontractor, IMPAQ International, pursuant to AHRQ’s statutory authority to conduct and support research on health care and on systems for the delivery of such care, including activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, appropriateness and value of health care services and with respect to quality measurement and improvement. 42 U.S.C. 299a(a)(1) and (2). Method of Collection This is a continuation of data collection for the purpose of conducting an evaluation of the TeamSTEPPS for Office-Based Care training program. The evaluation is formative in nature as AHRQ seeks information to improve the delivery of the online training. To conduct the evaluation, the TeamSTEPPS for Office-Based Care Post-Training Survey will be administered to all individuals who complete the TeamSTEPPS for OfficeBased Care training six months after training. The TeamSTEPPS for Office-Based Care Post-Training Survey will be administered via the Web to participants. In order to reduce respondent burden, the training participant questionnaire will be administered via the Web. Participant information acquired by HRET and its partner Reingold, Inc. when participants enroll in the TeamSTEPPS for Office-Based Care training program will be used to develop the distribution lists. Each potential respondent will receive up to five email communications to encourage participation (i.e., an advance notice of the questionnaire, an initial invitation to complete the questionnaire, and three follow-up emails to remind respondents to complete the questionnaire). Using an online system for data collection, rather than administering a paper-based questionnaire, will make completing and submitting the questionnaire less time consuming for respondents. Any skip patterns included in the questionnaire (i.e., questions that are appropriate only for a subset of the respondents) will be automatically programmed into the Web-based form of the questionnaire, thereby eliminating any confusion during questionnaire completion. In addition, the contractors can also ensure that important items are not inadvertently skipped or ignored by setting software requirements to ensure proper completion of questionnaires based on specific respondent selections. Estimated Annual Respondent Burden Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the respondent’s time to participate in the study. The TeamSTEPPS for OfficeBased Care Post-Training Survey will be completed by approximately 600 individuals per year. We estimate that each respondent will require 20 minutes to complete the survey. The total annualized burden is estimated to be 200 hours. Exhibit 2 shows the estimated annualized cost burden based on the respondents’ time to participate in the study. The total cost burden is estimated to be $24,944.

Description: Established within the Federal Parent Locator Service (FPLS) on October 1, 1998, the Federal Case Registry (FCR) is a database that contains basic case and participant data from each of the State Case Registries (SCRs). The SCRs are central registries of child support cases and orders in each state. The FCR is a national database that includes all child support cases handled by state child support agencies (referred to as IV–D cases), and all support orders established or modified on or after October 1, 1998 (referred to as non-IV– D orders). It assists states in locating parties that live in different states to establish, modify, or enforce child support obligations; establish paternity; enforce state law regarding parental kidnapping; and establish or enforce child custody or visitation determinations. When a state sends the FCR information about persons in a new case or child support order, this new information is automatically compared to existing person information in the FCR. If matches are found, the FPLS notifies all appropriate state child support enforcement agencies of the record match. In this way, a state will know if another state has a case or support order with participants in common with it, and can take appropriate action. The information collection activities pertaining to the FCR are authorized by: (1) 42 U.S.C. 653(h), requiring the establishment of the Federal Case Registry (FCR) within the Federal Parent Locator Service (FPLS). (2) 42 U.S.C. 654A(e), requiring State child support agencies to include a State Case Registry (SCR) in the state’s automated system. (3) 42 U.S.C. 654A(f)(1), requiring states to conduct information comparison activities between the SCR and the FCR. Respondents: State Child Support Agencies.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Proposed Project

``Implementation of TeamSTEPPS in Primary Care Settings (ITS-PC)''

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501-
3521, AHRQ invites the public to comment on this proposed information 
collection. As part of its effort to fulfill its mission, AHRQ, in 
collaboration with the Department of Defense's (DoD) Tricare Management 
Activity, developed TeamSTEPPS[supreg] (Team Strategies and Tools for 
Enhancing Performance and Patient Safety) to provide an evidence-based 
suite of tools and strategies for training teamwork-based patient 
safety to health care professionals. TeamSTEPPS includes multiple 
toolkits which are all tied to, or are variants of, the core

of learning for continued support and the improvement of teamwork in 
health care. Since the inception of the National Implementation 
Program, AHRQ has trained more than 8,000 participants to serve as

    To conduct the evaluation, the TeamSTEPPS for Office-Based Care 
Post-Training Survey will be administered to all individuals who 
complete the TeamSTEPPS for Office-Based Care training six months after
