Proposed Collection: Title: National Survey of Primary Care Physicians' Recommendations and Practice for Breast, Cervical, Colorectal, and Lung Cancer Screening. Type of Information Collection Request: New.

There have been substantial changes in guidelines and/or technologies for these types of cancer screening in recent years. The data collected in this study will support and further NCI work in monitoring and evaluating providers' cancer control knowledge, attitudes, and practices and their impact on population health, as well as enable monitoring of progress toward major cancer control goals. Two questionnaires, one covering breast and cervical cancer screening and the other colorectal and lung cancer screening, will be administered by mail or telephone to a randomly-selected national sample of primary care physicians. Frequency of Response: One Time. Affected Public: Medical practices, clinics, or other health care organizations. Type of Respondents: Primary Care Physicians. Burden estimates are as follows:

The expert panel will meet on June 1- 3, 2005, at the Holiday Inn Old Town Select in Alexandria, Virginia to review and revise the draft expert panel report and reach conclusions regarding whether exposure to styrene is a hazard to human development or reproduction. The expert panel will also identify data gaps and research needs. CERHR expert panel meetings are open to the public with time scheduled for oral public comment. Attendance is limited only by the available meeting room space. Following the expert panel meeting and completion of the expert panel report, the CERHR will post the report on its Web site and solicit public comment on it through a Federal Register notice.
