National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) Case Management Survey—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Start Printed Page 11982
Background and brief description of the proposed project: The impact of case management policy on the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) operations and clients is not well understood to date. Evaluation results thus far have produced a general, qualitative understanding of how case management has been implemented by grantees. Questions remain, however, regarding: (1) The number of grantees who have implemented different types of financial and service delivery models of case management; (2) costs associated with different approaches to case management; and (3) whether or not case management activities have a positive impact on clients. This evaluation project will focus on the first and second questions.
The purpose of the case management assessment will be to gather some quantitative and descriptive information about how the case management component has been implemented by all NBCCEDP grantees. Results of the evaluation should assist CDC in developing case management training, providing technical assistance, and assessing the costs of case management. A standardized written survey will be used to collect descriptive information from all NBCCEDP grantees on components of case management program activities including: organizational structure, financial and service delivery models, staffing, and needs for training or technical assistance. A total of 68 Breast and Cervical Cancer Program Directors will be asked to complete the survey, with assistance from program Case Management Coordinators as needed. The survey is expected to take an average of 1.5 hours to complete. The only cost to respondents is their time. This is a one-time data collection effort. The total annualized burden for respondents is 102 hours.
