National Program of Cancer Registries Program Evaluation Instrument (NPCR-PEI)—Revision—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
CDC is responsible for administering and monitoring the National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR). As of 2008, CDC supports 45 states, two territories, the District of Columbia, and the Pacific Island Jurisdictions' unified Central Cancer Registry (CCR) for population-based cancer registries. CCRs are the foundation of cancer prevention and control, providing information from reporting jurisdictions to ensure that high-quality and timely cancer surveillance data are available to CDC.
CDC has collected program activity information from NPCR-funded registries on an annual basis. Beginning in 2009, CDC proposes to change the data collection frequency from annual to every other year, with data collection occurring only in odd-numbered years. Information will be collected electronically in 2009 and 2011 using the Web-based Program Evaluation Instrument (NPCR-PEI). The information will be used to evaluate various attributes of the registries funded by NPCR, monitor NPCR registries' progress towards program standards and objectives, compare an individual NPCR registry's progress towards standards with national program standards, and disseminate information about the NPCR. Continued clearance for a three-year period is requested.
There are no costs to respondents except their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 50.
