Start Preamble


Under the provisions of section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request to review and approve the information collection listed below. This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register. August 5, 2002 (67 FR 50678-50679), and allowed 60-days for public comment. No public comments were received. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment. The National Institutes of Health may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

Proposed Collection:

Title: National Kidney Disease Education Program Evaluation Survey. Type of Information Collection Request: New. Need and Use of Information Collection: NIDDK will conduct a survey to monitor and evaluate the effects of a pilot kidney disease education program. This will be accomplished through baseline and follow-up surveys of the primary target audience members, i.e., African American adults and primary care providers, in four pilot site locations. The search is designed to assess the overall impact of the program, but also to provide information that will be useful in developing and refining this and future programs. Frequency of Response: A baseline and follow-up survey will each require a onetime response. Affected Public: Individuals or households, clinics or doctor's offices. Type of Respondents: African-American adults and primary care providers (e.g., physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, etc.). The annual reporting burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,000; Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1 (Respondents will answer a single survey: African American adults will complete a 20 minute computer assisted telephone interview (CATI); Primary care providers will complete a 10 minute faxed survey); Average Burden Hours Per Response: .298 and Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested: 596. The annualized total cost to respondents is estimated at $10,684. All respondents will be contacted via telephone. To reduce respondent burden and overall costs of administering the study, it is expected that random digit dialing will be used to contact African American adults and telephone lists will be used to contact primary care providers. Because different program materials will be developed for each audience the questionnaires will be tailored such that respondents will be asked only target-audience pertinent questions. There are no Capital Costs to report. There are no Operating or Maintenance Costs to report.
