Summary: Under the provisions of Section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for review and approval of the information collection listed below. This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on March 19, 2009, pages 11736-11737 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: Survey of NHLBI Constituents' Health Information Needs and Preferred Formats. Type of Information Collection Request: NEW. Need and Use of Information Collection: The purpose of this survey is to obtain information from NHLBI constituents (health professionals, patients and their families, and the general public) for the purpose of evaluating their health information and education needs and format preferences. The Consumer Services Team (CST) will use the data collected in this survey to create a 3-year Strategic Plan. The findings from the survey, described in the Strategic Plan, will be used to develop new health information materials for NHLBI constituents and to revise materials currently in the Institute's portfolio. Frequency of Response: Once every 3 years. Affected Public: Individuals. Type of Respondents: Individuals who have been consumers of NHLBI information within the past 3 years. The annual reporting burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,450; Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1; Average Burden Hours per Response: 0.2; and Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested: 162. The annualized cost to respondents is estimated at: $3,518.62. There are no Capital Costs, Operating Costs and/or Maintenance Costs to report.
