Proposed Project: Participant Feedback on Training Under the Cooperative Agreement for Mental Health Care Provider Education in HIV/AIDS Program (OMB No. 0930-0195)—Revision
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) intends to continue to conduct a multi-site assessment for the Mental Health Care Provider Education in HIV/AIDS Program. The education programs funded under this cooperative agreement are designed to disseminate knowledge of the psychological and neuropsychiatric sequelae of HIV/AIDS to both traditional (e.g., psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, primary care physicians, medical students, and social workers) and non-traditional (e.g., clergy, and alternative health care workers) first-line providers of mental health services, in particular to providers in minority communities.
The multi-site assessment is designed to assess the effectiveness of particular Start Printed Page 61362training curricula, document the integrity of training delivery formats, and assess the effectiveness of the various training delivery formats. Analyses will assist CMHS in documenting the numbers and types of traditional and non-traditional mental health providers accessing training; the content, nature and types of training participants receive; and the extent to which trainees experience knowledge, skill and attitude gains/changes as a result of training attendance. The multi-site data collection design uses a two-tiered data collection and analytic strategy to collect information on (1) the organization and delivery of training, and (2) the impact of training on participants' knowledge, skills and abilities.
Information about the organization and delivery of training will be collected from trainers and staff who are funded by these cooperative agreements/contracts, hence there is no respondent burden. All training participants will be asked to complete a brief feedback form at the end of the training session. CMHS anticipates funding 10 education sites for the Mental Health Care Provider Education in HIV/AIDS Program. The annual burden estimates for this activity are shown below:
|Form||Responses per respondent||Estimated number of respondents (× 10 sites)||Hours per response||Total hours|
|Session Report Form||1||60 × 10 = 600||0.080||48|
|Participant Feedback Form (General Education)||1||500 × 10 = 5000||0.167||835|
|Neuropsychiatric Participant Feedback Form||1||160 × 10 = 1600||0.167||267|
|Non Physician Neuropsychiatric Participant Feedback Form||1||240 × 10 = 2400||0.167||401|
|Adherence Participant Feedback Form||1||100 × 10 = 1000||0.167||167|
|Ethics Participant Feedback Form||1||200 × 10 = 2000||0.167||125|
