Information Collection Request Title: Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Evaluation. OMB No.: 0906–xxxx—New. Abstract: In September 2017, HRSA launched a multi-part effort to increase the workforce capacity of the U.S. health care system to prevent and treat the opioid crisis. As a part of this effort, HRSA developed or expanded activities under five programs to help combat the crisis: (1) The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program offers loan repayment to providers focused on Substance Use Disorder treatment (NHSC SUD Workforce LRP), (2) the National Health Service Corps Rural Communities Loan Repayment SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\24JAN1.SGM 24JAN1 lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES 4328 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 16 / Friday, January 24, 2020 / Notices Program (NHSC Rural Communities LRP), (3) the Opioid Workforce Expansion Program (OWEP), (4) the Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training Program (BHWET), and (5) the Graduate Psychology Education (GPE) Program. These programs provide either loan repayment to providers (NHSC SUD Workforce LRP, NHSC Rural Communities LRP) or funding for training programs for behavioral health professionals and paraprofessionals to increase integrated behavioral health into primary care treatment and interprofessional team-based care to high-need areas (OWEP, BHWET, GPE). The purpose of the planned evaluation is to assess these five programs with respect to their stated goals of increasing access to the number of clinicians delivering evidence-based SUD treatment, enhancing education and training in substance use prevention and treatment for current and future health care professionals and paraprofessionals in rural and underserved communities, and integrating behavioral health into primary care to improve the capacity of the health care delivery system to provide SUD prevention and treatment services. The evaluation will include data collection through web-based surveys to trainees, recipients of loan repayments, grantee organizations, and training sites participating in BHW’s SUD prevention and treatment programs. At the trainee/ participant level, questions will focus on educational and professional background, motivation and incentives to join or leave the program, training experiences, perceived readiness to deliver SUD treatment services (where applicable), capacity to engage in prevention strategies, and postgraduation employment (where applicable). At the recipient grantee organization level (note: This level is not relevant to the NHSC programs), questions will focus on recruitment and retention of students, how their SUD prevention and treatment training program curriculum was developed, as applicable, collaboration with SUD prevention and treatment training sites, plans for sustainability of SUD prevention and treatment activities, as well as any other benefits that resulted from the program. At the site level, questions will focus on SUD prevention and treatment training such as addressing motivation for the site to participate, whether and what type of integrated care delivery is available, and other organizational factors of the site. At all three levels, and for all programs, we will collect survey SUD prevention and treatment training data on VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:03 Jan 23, 2020 Jkt 250001 satisfaction with the program and recommendations for improving it. In total, six survey instruments will be used in this evaluation: (1) NHSC SUD Workforce Loan Repayment Program/NHSC Rural Communities Loan Repayment Program/NHSC Loan Repayment Program—Participant Survey, (2) NHSC Loan Repayment Program—Site Survey, (3) Grantee Training and Educational Programs— Trainee Survey, (4) Grantee Training and Educational Programs—Alumni Survey, (5) Grantee Training and Educational Programs—Site Survey, and (6) Grantee Training and Educational Programs—Grantee Organization Survey. As part of a comprehensive questionnaire design process, questions will be limited and refined to collect information not available through secondary sources. Any data collected will not be duplicative of that collected under progress reports or other BHW grant monitoring. NHSC site and participant survey questions will be drawn from prior NHSC Satisfaction Surveys, which were fielded in 2017 and 2018 but were discontinued. Skip patterns will allow respondents to answer only relevant questions for each of their programs. Participation in all surveys is voluntary, and all surveys will be fielded annually for three years beginning in 2020 and concluding in 2022 to include each annual cohort of trainees and participants. Each trainee, participant, or site will complete their respective surveys one time. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The purpose of this effort is to evaluate BHW’s SUD prevention and treatment expansion program investments with respect to the following objectives: • Objective 1: What is the impact of the NHSC SUD Workforce LRP and the NHSC Rural Communities LRP on the provision of SUD, services in underserved areas compared to those who participate in the non-SUD NHSC LRP? • Objective 2: How are the activities in the BHWET, GPE, and OWEP programs contributing to the expansion of service delivery for SUD prevention and treatment, at the individual, educational, and service-delivery system level? • Objective 3: To what extent are the BHW’s programs successful at increasing access to treatment for SUD, including opioid treatment services?

prevention and treatment, at the individual, educational, and service-
delivery system level?
