Download as PDF 51838 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 215 / Wednesday, November 8, 2017 / Notices Background and Brief Description Compared to people without mental illness (MI), people with MI have higher rates of cancer risk factors such as smoking and obesity. Many people with MI receive outpatient mental health care at community mental health centers (CMHC), and some of these facilities provide screening for cardiovascular disease and other chronic conditions. The extent to which cancer prevention services are provided at CMHCs is not understood. This project will use online instruments and telephone interviews with psychiatric clinicians and administrators at selected CMHCs across collaboration of CMHCs with health care providers or community health workers/organizations to provide these services; and (4) describe any barriers to providing these services. Researchers will ask respondents that provide cancer prevention services about best practices and lessons learned. There will be no costs to the respondents other than their time. To calculate the total burden, we estimated 500 respondents for the surveys and 50 for the interviews. The average burden will vary from 15–20 minutes for the surveys and one hour for the interviews. The total estimated annual burden hours are 392. the United States to assess the capacities of these facilities to provide cancer prevention services (e.g., cancer risk factor education, cancer screening referrals, tobacco cessation counseling) to clients. With a goal to achieve a final analytic sample of at least 250 psychiatric clinicians and 250 administrators at CMHCs, researchers will interview a subset of 5%-10% of each group by telephone. The objectives of this study are to (1) describe the capacity of CMHCs to provide cancer prevention services; (2) describe any written policies and procedures at CMHCS for providing these services; (3) describe any ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Number of respondents Average burden per response (in hours) Number of responses per respondent Total burden (in hours) Type of respondents Form name Psychiatric clinicians .........................

Proposed Project Information Collection on CauseSpecific Absenteeism in Schools and Evaluation of Influenza Transmission within Student Households—Revision— National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The CDC requests approval of a revised information collection to improve our understanding of the role of influenza-like illness (ILI)-specific absenteeism in schools in predicting community-wide influenza transmission and to detect within-household transmission of influenza in households from which a student has been absent from school due to ILI. This information collection request aligns DGMQ/CDC’s mission to reduce morbidity and mortality in mobile E:\FR\FM\08NON1.SGM 08NON1 51839 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 215 / Wednesday, November 8, 2017 / Notices populations, and to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases within the United States. Insights gained from this information collection will assist in pandemic preparedness planning and implementation of CDC Pre-Pandemic Guidance on the use of school related measures, including school closures, to slow transmission during an influenza pandemic. School closures were considered an important measure during the earliest stage of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, because a pandemic vaccine was not available until October (six months later), and sufficient stocks to immunize all school-age children were not available until December. However, retrospective review of the U.S. government response to the pandemic identified a limited evidence-base regarding the effectiveness, acceptability, and feasibility of various school related measures during mild or moderately severe pandemics. Guidance updates will require an evidence-based rationale for determining the appropriate triggers, timing, and duration of school related measures, including school closures, during a pandemic. CDC staff proposes that the information collection for this project will target adult and child populations in a school district in Wisconsin. CDC will collect reports of individual student symptoms, vaccination status, recent travel, recent exposure to people with influenza symptoms, and duration of illness. In accordance with the revised proposal, CDC will also collect reports on household composition, and influenza vaccination status; symptoms and severity of illness; related healthcare visits; and missed work or school of the participating students’ household members. This information accomplished through telephone and inperson interviews. CDC will use findings obtained from this information to inform and update CDC’s Pre-pandemic Guidance on the implementation of school related measures to prevent the spread of influenza, especially school closures. Both state and local health departments in the United States use this guidance as an important planning and reference tool. CDC has enrolled in the study 651 students absent from school due to ILI since gaining OMB approval in December 2014, 651 students absent from school due to ILI. Of them, 58% were positive for at least one respiratory pathogen included in the PCR panel that tests for the presence of 17 common respiratory viruses, and 27% of the students were found to be positive for influenza. It was demonstrated that absenteeism due to ILI in school children was highly correlated with PCR-confirmed influenza in enrolled school children (r = 0.73; P < 0.001) and with medically-attended influenza in the surrounding community (r = 0.72; P < 0.001) suggesting that ILI-specific school absenteeism can be considered a useful tool for predicting influenza outbreaks in the surrounding community. However, researchers require more observations during influenza seasons caused by other influenza strains to make these findings more robust. This revision adds a household transmission component to the ongoing approved information collection. In addition to collecting data and biospecimens from students who were absent from school because of the ILI, information and biospecimens will also be collected from household members of these students. This revision aims to enhance current knowledge and understanding of introduction of influenza infection to households that have school-age children as well as within-household transmission.

Proposed Project

    Information Collection on Cause-Specific Absenteeism in Schools and 
Evaluation of Influenza Transmission within Student Households--
Revision--National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases 
(NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The CDC requests approval of a revised information collection to 
improve our understanding of the role of influenza-like illness (ILI)-
specific absenteeism in schools in predicting community-wide influenza 
transmission and to detect within-household transmission of influenza 
in households from which a student has been absent from school due to 
ILI.

populations, and to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread 
of communicable diseases within the United States. Insights gained from 
this information collection will assist in pandemic preparedness 
planning and implementation of CDC Pre-Pandemic Guidance on the use of 
school related measures, including school closures, to slow 
transmission during an influenza pandemic.
    School closures were considered an important measure during the 
earliest stage of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, because a pandemic vaccine 
was not available until October (six months later), and sufficient 
stocks to immunize all school-age children were not available until 
December. However, retrospective review of the U.S. government response 
to the pandemic identified a limited evidence-base regarding the 
effectiveness, acceptability, and feasibility of various school related 
measures during mild or moderately severe pandemics. Guidance updates 
will require an evidence-based rationale for determining the 
appropriate triggers, timing, and duration of school related measures, 
including school closures, during a pandemic.
    CDC staff proposes that the information collection for this project 
will target adult and child populations in a school district in 
Wisconsin. CDC will collect reports of individual student symptoms, 
vaccination status, recent travel, recent exposure to people with 
influenza symptoms, and duration of illness. In accordance with the 
revised proposal, CDC will also collect reports on household 
composition, and influenza vaccination status; symptoms and severity of 
illness; related healthcare visits; and missed work or school of the 
participating students' household members. This information 
accomplished through telephone and in-person interviews.
    CDC will use findings obtained from this information to inform and 
update CDC's Pre-pandemic Guidance on the implementation of school 
related measures to prevent the spread of influenza, especially school 
closures. Both state and local health departments in the United States 
use this guidance as an important planning and reference tool.
    CDC has enrolled in the study 651 students absent from school due 
to ILI since gaining OMB approval in December 2014, 651 students absent 
from school due to ILI. Of them, 58% were positive for at least one 
respiratory pathogen included in the PCR panel that tests for the 
presence of 17 common respiratory viruses, and 27% of the students were 
found to be positive for influenza. It was demonstrated that 
absenteeism due to ILI in school children was highly correlated with 
PCR-confirmed influenza in enrolled school children (r = 0.73; P < 
0.001) and with medically-attended influenza in the surrounding 
community (r = 0.72; P < 0.001) suggesting that ILI-specific school 
absenteeism can be considered a useful tool for predicting influenza 
outbreaks in the surrounding community. However, researchers require 
more observations during influenza seasons caused by other influenza 
strains to make these findings more robust.
    This revision adds a household transmission component to the 
ongoing approved information collection. In addition to collecting data 
and biospecimens from students who were absent from school because of 
the ILI, information and biospecimens will also be collected from 
household members of these students. This revision aims to enhance 
current knowledge and understanding of introduction of influenza 
infection to households that have school-age children as well as 
within-household transmission.
    There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The 
total estimated annual burden hours are 419.
