Proposed Project—Community Guide Surveillance and Evaluation Survey—New—Epidemiology Program Office (EPO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The Community Guide Surveillance and Evaluation Survey will be used to collect information about the degree to which segments of the target audience for the Guide to Community Preventive Services (Community Guide) is aware of and using findings in public health planning decisions. Public health practitioners, including state and local health officials and faculty from schools of public health throughout the United States and its territories, will be invited to participate. The Community Guide is based on systematic reviews of published evidence of effectiveness of selected population based interventions across a range of health topics. The data from this survey will be used to assess familiarity with, understanding of use, and dissemination of findings from the Community Guide. The results of this study will be used by the independent Task Force on Community Preventive Services and staff supporting the Task Force from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to improve dissemination and use of Community Guide reviews and recommendations. The sample will include 9 people from each of the 56 states and territories, including Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands, for a total sample size of 504 people. The total annual burden estimate is 101 hours. The survey will be administered annually, contingent on availability of funds, through a Web-based format.
