Announcement of Public Meeting via Teleconference; North American Wetlands Conservation Council, 4919-4920 [2018-02113]

Download as PDF 4919 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 23 / Friday, February 2, 2018 / Notices The overarching purpose of the proposed Evaluation of Imminent Risk data collection is to evaluate hotline counselors’ management of imminent risk callers and third party callers concerned about persons at imminent risk, assess counselor adherence to the Lifeline Policies and Guidelines for Helping Callers at Imminent Risk of Suicide, and identify the types of interventions implemented with imminent risk callers. Specifically, the Evaluation of Imminent Risk will collect data, using the Imminent Risk FormRevised, to inform the network’s knowledge of the extent to which counselors are aware of and being guided by Lifeline’s imminent risk guidelines; counselors’ definitions of imminent risk; the rates of active rescue of imminent risk callers; the types of rescue and non-rescue interventions used; barriers to intervention; and the circumstances in which active rescue is initiated, including the caller’s agreement to receive the intervention. To capture differences across centers, the form also collects information on counselors’ employment status and hours worked/volunteered, level of education, license status, training status, source of safety planning protocols, and responsibility for follow up. Clearance is being requested for one activity to assess the knowledge, actions, and practices of counselors to aid callers who are determined to be at imminent risk for suicide and who may require active rescue. This evaluation will allow researchers to examine and understand the actions taken by counselors to aid imminent risk callers, the need for active rescue, the types of interventions used, and, ultimately, improve the delivery of crisis hotline services to imminent risk callers. A total of seven centers will participate in this evaluation. Thus, SAMHSA is requesting OMB review and approval of the Imminent Risk Form-Revised. Crisis counselors at seven participating centers will record information discussed with imminent risk callers on the Imminent Risk FormRevised, which does not require direct data collection from callers. As with previously approved evaluations, callers will maintain anonymity. Participating counselors will be asked to complete the form for 100% of their imminent risk calls. At centers with high call volumes, data collection may be limited to designated shifts. This form requests information in 15 content areas, each with multiple sub-items and response options. Response options include open-ended, yes/no, Likert-type ratings, and multiple choice/check all that apply. The form also requests demographic information on the caller, the identification of the center and counselor submitting the form, and the date of the call. Specifically, the form is divided into the following sections: (1) Counselor information, (2) center information, (3) call characteristics (e.g., line called, language spoken, participation of third party), (4) suicidal desire, (5) suicidal intent, (6) suicidal capability, (7) buffers to suicide, (8) interventions agreed to by caller or implemented by counselor without caller’s consent, (9) whether imminent risk was reduced enough such that active rescue was not needed, (10) interventions for third party callers calling about a person at imminent risk, (11) whether supervisory consultation occurred during or after the call, (12) barriers to getting needed help to the person at imminent risk, (13) steps taken to confirm whether emergency contact was made with person at risk, (14) outcome of attempts to rescue person at risk, and (15) outcome of attempts to follow-up on the case. The form also includes an Additional Counselor Training section that counselors complete only when applicable. This section includes one new question specifically related to the use of the Lifeline Simulation Training System. The form will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and will be completed by the counselor after the call. It is expected that a total of 440 forms will be completed by 116 counselors over the two-year data collection period. The estimated response burden to collect this information is annualized over the requested two-year clearance period and is presented below: TOTAL AND ANNUALIZED BURDEN: RESPONDENTS, RESPONSES AND HOURS Instrument Number of respondents Responses/ respondent Total responses Hours per response Total burden hours National Suicide Prevention Lifeline—Imminent Risk FormRevised ............................................................................. 116 1.9 220 .26 57 Send comments to Summer King, SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer, SAMHSA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Room 15E57B, Rockville, MD 20857 OR email a copy at summer.king@ samhsa.hhs.gov.
