Proposed Project Stakeholder Interviews for the Evaluation of the World Trade Center Health Program for Impact Assessment and Strategic Planning for Translational Research—New—National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP) was established by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010, Public Law 111–347 (hereafter referred to as ‘‘the Zadroga Act’’). Under subtitle C, the Zadroga Act requires the establishment of a research program on health conditions resulting from the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The Research to Care PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40057 (RTC) model is the strategic framework employed by the WTCHP to prioritize, conduct, and assess research that informs excellence in clinical care for the population of responders and survivors affected by the 9/11 attacks in New York City. It is the focus of this assessment. The RTC model assumes the collective involvement of different WTCHP stakeholders, including members, researchers, clinicians, and program administrators. It accounts for a variety of inputs that can affect the progress and impact of WTCHP research. These inputs include people and organizations (e.g., program members, providers, clinical centers of excellence, extramural researchers, and program staff), resources (e.g., technology, data centers, the NYC 9/11 Health Registry) and regulatory rules, principally the Zadroga Act. The program supports activities such as research prioritization, conduct of research, delivery of medical care, and iterative assessments of the translation of research to improvements in health care services and chronic disease management. These activities aim to produce tangible outputs such as research findings on WTC-related conditions, healthcare protocols, peerreviewed publications, quality assessment reports, and member and provider education products. Finally, the model anticipates short-, intermediate-, and long-term measurement of outcomes and serves as a communication tool for program planning and evaluation. In 2016, NIOSH contracted with the RAND Corporation to evaluate the WTCHP RTC model including the research investments to date and the effectiveness with which the Program translates its research to different stakeholder groups. This work will ultimately provide guidance for the WTCHP on strategic directions, as well as produce generalizable knowledge about the translation of research into improved outcomes for individuals and populations exposed to disasters such as the 9/11 attacks. As a part of this evaluation, we will hold a series of interviews with representatives of different stakeholder groups to explore their perspectives on translational research in the context of the WTCHP. These interviews are necessary to gather information on the translation of WTCHP-supported research into better care for members, the impact of this research, and stakeholders’ views on future directions for the program. Interview responses will be incorporated into RAND’s overall assessment of the WTCHP program’s E:\FR\FM\13AUN1.SGM 13AUN1
