Proposed Information Collection Activity; Family Level Assessment and State of Home Visiting (FLASH-V) Outreach and Recruitment Study (New Collection), 3922-3923 [2020-01018]

Download as PDF 3922 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 15 / Thursday, January 23, 2020 / Notices funded health centers to support implementation of evidence-based recommendations for health centers and providers to improve adolescent access to reproductive health services. In addition, awardees have worked with approximately 30 youth-serving organizations (YSO) to provide staff training and develop systematic approaches to identifying youth who are at risk for a teen pregnancy and referring those youth to reproductive health care services. Finally, awardees have developed communication campaigns that increase awareness of the partner health centers’ services for teens. Activities are expected to result in changes to health center and YSO partners’ policies, to staff practices, and to youth health care seeking and teen pregnancy prevention behaviors. The best practices to improve adolescent access to reproductive health services included in this program are supported by evidence in the literature and recommended by major medical associations. Each of the components of the current project has been implemented as part of past teen pregnancy prevention efforts. Consistent with CDC’s mission of using evidence to improve public health programs, conducting an evaluation of combined best practices, in concert with community-clinical linkage of youth to services to increase their access to reproductive health care, can provide further information to inform future teen pregnancy prevention efforts. CDC has been collecting the information needed to assess these efforts under ‘‘Performance Monitoring of ‘Working with Publicly Funded Health Centers to Reduce Teen Pregnancy among Youth from Vulnerable Populations’ ’’ (OMB No. 0920–1156, Exp. 1/31/2020). CDC is using the information to determine the types of training and technical assistance that may be needed, to monitor whether awardees meet objectives related to health center and YSO partners’ policies and staff practices, to support a data-driven quality improvement process for adolescent sexual and reproductive health care services and referrals, and to assess whether the project model was effective in increasing the utilization of services by youth. A revision of the currently approved information collection is being requested in order to continue data collection until the end of the project. Remaining information collection activities will include awardees, health center partner organizations, and providers at the health center partners; information collection during the extension period will not include YSOs or youths being served by health centers, as significant changes are not expected to be found for YSOs in the final year and that the youth survey will not need to be conducted beyond late 2019. Participation in the organizational assessment activities is required for awardees and partner organizations. Participation in a survey of health center providers is voluntary. The total estimated burden hours for the extension period are 485 hours. ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Form name Private Sector .................................................
