Download as PDF 712 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 4 / Tuesday, January 7, 2020 / Notices enhancing the quality, appropriateness, and effectiveness of health care services and access to such services. 42 U.S.C. 299(b). AHRQ accomplishes these goals through scientific research and promotion of improvements in clinical practice, including clinical prevention of diseases and other health conditions. See 42 U.S.C. 299(b). The USPSTF, an independent body of experts in prevention and evidencebased medicine, works to improve the health of all Americans by making evidence-based recommendations about the effectiveness of clinical preventive services and health promotion. The recommendations made by the USPSTF address clinical preventive services for adults and children, and include screening tests, counseling services, and preventive medications. The USPSTF was first established in 1984 under the auspices of the U.S. Public Health Service. Currently, the USPSTF is convened by the Director of AHRQ, and AHRQ provides ongoing scientific, administrative, and dissemination support for the USPSTF’s operation. USPSTF members serve four year terms. New members are selected each year to replace those members who are completing their appointments. The USPSTF is charged with rigorously evaluating the effectiveness, appropriateness and cost-effectiveness of clinical preventive services and formulating or updating recommendations regarding the appropriate provision of preventive services. See 42 U.S.C. 299b–4(a)(1). Current USPSTF recommendations and associated evidence reviews are available on the internet (www. uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org). USPSTF members currently meet three times a year for two days in the Washington, DC area. A significant portion of the USPSTF’s work occurs between meetings during conference calls and via email discussions. Member duties include prioritizing topics, designing research plans, reviewing and commenting on systematic evidence reviews of evidence, discussing and making recommendations on preventive services, reviewing stakeholder comments, drafting final recommendation documents, and participating in workgroups on specific topics and methods. Members can expect to receive frequent emails, can expect to participate in multiple conference calls each month, and can expect to have periodic interaction with stakeholders. AHRQ estimates that members devote approximately 200 hours a year outside of in-person meetings to their USPSTF duties. The members are all volunteers and do not receive any compensation beyond support for travel to in person meetings. Dated: January 2, 2020. Virginia L. Mackay-Smith, Associate Director.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. Center for Tobacco Products, Food and Drug Administration Funded Trainee/ Scholar Survey OMB Control Number 0910–NEW The Tobacco Control Act (Pub. L. 111–31) amends the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) to grant FDA authority to regulate the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products to protect the public health and to reduce tobacco use by minors. FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) and the National Institutes of Health maintain an interagency partnership to foster the development of the emerging field of tobacco regulatory science (TRS). This study will use the CTP, FDA Funded Trainee/Scholar Survey to gather data on the characteristics, activities, and impact of training programs funded by the CTP and other partners. This evaluation will also determine how CTP-funded research and associated training programs and activities increase knowledge and skills related to TRS and interest to pursue careers in a TRSrelated field. This survey provides 713 support to determine the extent to which programs and activities generate positive impacts to increase the number of researchers who focus on TRS and TRS-related topics, specifically within CTP’s priority domains. The survey builds upon previous evaluations of trainees and training activities and provides necessary evidence to inform FDA decision making. The web survey will gather responses from Tobacco Centers of Regulatory Science (TCORS) trainees and other CTP-funded trainees and scholars. Results will provide insights and directions to support future training and funding investments. FDA CTP will use findings from this study to determine whether its TRS training support investments lead to meaningful change that supports CTP aims, and to inform decisions about potential future investments. CTP’s training support intends to build additional capacity for TRS that establishes an evidence base related to CTP’s research priorities so that FDA regulations, communications, and application review are founded on rigorous, relevant scientific study. Respondents include current and former TCORS or other CTP-funded trainees and trainee principal investigators (PIs) or training directors. PIs and training directors will be asked to provide trainee names and email addresses and encourage trainees to participate in the survey. Current and former trainees will be asked to read an informed consent and take a brief webbased survey. In the Federal Register of September 12, 2019 (84 FR 48148), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Number of respondents Type of respondent/activity Number of responses per respondent Total annual responses Average burden per response Total hours khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Current or Former Trainee/Scholar Lead Letter ...............................................................
