Download as PDF 5794 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 28 / Friday, February 9, 2018 / Notices as the average response will be 0.1 hour shorter, and the cost of online survey can range $3–$4 per survey compared to $50-$100 for a high quality phone survey. To improve the relevance of the data collected, HRSA solicited approximately 40 organ donation subject matter experts for their feedback on making changes to the survey. Based on their expert advice, HRSA is revising the instrument to add, remove, or edit a few questions as noted in the draft survey instrument. Example changes include removing certain questions that were only relevant for a random-digitdialing sample design, editing certain questions to add clarity, and adding questions to highlight emerging topics such as receiving organ donation information through a hand-held device or mobile apps. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA is the primary federal entity responsible for oversight of the solid organ and blood stem cell transplant systems and initiatives to increase organ donor registration and donation in the United States. This survey is the primary method by which HRSA can obtain information from Americans about organ donation attitudes and beliefs. OMB previously approved this survey and HRSA fielded it during 2005 and 2012. Results of the data collected from this survey will inform the development of appropriate messages for future public outreach and educational initiatives. Increasing the number of completed cases via a web panel for online survey completion and modifying the survey instrument without increasing the survey length will dramatically improve the quality and accuracy of the results while minimizing respondent burden as much as possible. The revised instrument and survey fielding methods will allow research on the attitudes and behaviors of important subgroups of Americans as well as research on emerging topics related to organ donation. Likely Respondents: A nationally representative sample of adults over the age of 18 with a higher number of responses from populations of interest such as racial-ethnic minorities, including African American, Asian, Native American, and Hispanic respondents, as well as respondents of all age groups and education levels. 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 review instructions; to 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; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

    Abstract: HRSA is requesting the Organ Procurement and 
Transplantation Network (OPTN) perform a federally sponsored data 
collection as part of a pilot project to monitor the testing of 
deceased potential donors possibly exposed to the Zika virus (ZIKV). 
The Zika Pilot Project will have a 12-month performance period enabling 
OPTN to develop a plan to collect data on ways for organ procurement 
organizations (OPOs) to deploy ZIKV donor screening tests of blood 
products. The testing is available under an investigational new drug 
application for use on a voluntary basis in the evaluation of deceased 
persons as potential solid organ donors. OPTN will conduct an analysis 
of the data collected under this project to determine the potential 
effect of making available screening tests for ZIKV, when appropriate, 
to improve transplant safety. OPTN will convene a group of stakeholders 
to provide guidance and monitor progress on the ZIKV pilot project.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: ZIKV is prevalent in 
several areas of the United States. Currently, there is not a ZIKV 
screening procedure for OPOs to implement during the organ allocation 
process. HRSA requested OPTN to conduct a pilot project to monitor the 
testing of deceased donors potentially exposed to ZIKV. The goals of 
the pilot project are to:
     Collaborate with experts to define necessary data elements 
to understand the impact of ZIKV testing in deceased organ donors;
     Deploy a data collection tool to a limited number of OPOs 
that agree to participate in the pilot project; and
     Assess the ability of OPTN to respond to a public health 
situation by collecting data from impacted members of the transplant 
community to assess the national experience.
    Likely Respondents: Organ Procurement Organizations.
    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 review 
instructions; to 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; to train personnel and to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and 
review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise 
disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this ICR are summarized in the table below.
