Abstract: The National Marrow Donor Program®/Be The Match® is a HRSA contractor dedicated to helping patients and families get the support and information they need to learn about their disease and treatment options, prepare for a blood stem cell transplant, and thrive after a transplant procedure. The information and resources provided help individuals navigate the bone marrow or cord blood transplant process. Participant feedback is essential to understand the needs for transplant support services and educational information across a diverse population. This information is used to determine the helpfulness of existing services and resources. Feedback is also used to identify areas for improvement and develop future programs. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Barriers to access to bone marrow or cord blood transplant related care and educational information are multi-factorial. Feedback from participants is essential to understand the changing needs for services and information as well as to demonstrate the effectiveness of existing services. The primary use for information gathered through the survey is to determine helpfulness of participants’ initial contact with Be The Match® Patient Services Coordinators (PSC) and to identify areas for improvement in the delivery of services. In addition, stakeholders use this evaluation data to make program and resource allocation decisions. The survey includes the following items to measure: (1) Reason for contacting Be The Match®, (2) if the PSC was able to answer questions and easy to understand, (3) if the contact helped the participant to feel better prepared to discuss transplant with their care team, (4) increase in awareness of available resources, (5) timeliness of response, and (6) overall satisfaction. Proposed changes to the survey instrument include updated references to the survey title and staff titles. Changes to the questions include minor changes to question one, changes to the instructions for questions three and four, and minor rewording of question E:\FR\FM\13NON1.SGM 13NON1 52312 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 217 / Monday, November 13, 2017 / Notices six. Question eight is simplified. References to race and ethnicity are updated to better match preliminary U.S. Census Bureau question format and statements from the U.S. Department of Education to allow individuals to selfidentify their ethnicity and race and permit individuals to select more than one race and/or ethnicity. These changes will not increase respondent burden. Likely Respondents: Respondents will include all patients, caregivers, and family members who have contact with Be The Match® Patient Services Coordinators via phone or email for transplant navigation services and support. The decision to survey all participants was made based on historic evidence of patients’ unavailability due to frequent transitions in health status as well as transfer between home and the hospital for initial treatment and care for complications. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to: (1) Review instructions; (2) develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; (3) train personnel; (4) be able to respond to a collection of information; (5) search data sources; (6) to complete and review the collection of information; (7) and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

OMB No.: 0915–0172—Revision. Abstract: HRSA is updating the Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant to States Program: Guidance and Forms for the Title V Application/Annual Report. This guidance is used annually by the 50 states and 9 jurisdictions in applying for Block Grants under Title V of the Social Security Act and in preparing the required annual report. The updates proposed by HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) for this edition of the guidance are intended to reinforce the reporting structure and vision outlined in the previous edition and to reinforce the role of the state in developing a Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Action Plan that responds to its unique priority needs. These updates are intended to enable a state to present an articulate and comprehensive description of its Title V program ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 activities and leadership role in assuring a public health system for serving the MCH population. The proposed updates to the next edition of the guidance were informed by comments received from state Title V MCH program leadership, national MCH leaders, family-led organizations, other MCH stakeholders and the public. Publication of a 60-day Federal Register notice on June 9, 2017 at 82 FR 26810, generated comments on the proposed changes to the narrative reporting requirements, reporting forms, definitions, consolidation of the 15 National Performance Measures (NPMs) into five domains, re-titling of a sixth domain to ‘‘Cross-cutting and Systems Building,’’ reduction in the required number of state-selected NPMs and description of family partnerships. Specific updates to this edition of the Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant to States Program: Guidance and Forms for the Title V Application/Annual Report include the following: (1) The current performance measure framework is maintained, but the 15 National Performance Measures (NPMs) are now distributed within five population domains (i.e., (Women/ Maternal Health; Perinatal/Infant Health; Child Health; Adolescent Health; and Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN)). (2) The Cross-cutting/Life Course domain is replaced by the Cross-cutting and Systems Building Domain, which is an optional domain for states to include as a State Performance Measure (SPM) for addressing an identified priority E:\FR\FM\13NON1.SGM 13NON1
