Project—RECOVERY: Increasing Adoption of Patient Centered Behavioral Health Research by Primary and Behavioral Health Providers and Systems—NEW

SAMHSA's Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) will conduct a study to evaluate the impact of different strategies for disseminating and promoting the adoption of patient-centered health research results among behavioral health and primary care providers and organizations that are responsible for delivering behavioral health services. Data collected by this study will allow CBHSQ to document and examine the impact of two dissemination strategies on the decision to adopt patient-centered health research; specifically, motivational interviewing and trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. These data will also allow for an examination of contextual factors, both organizational and individual, that influence this decision to adopt an evidence-based behavioral health intervention. Ultimately, data collected by this study will inform those who hope to improve the effectiveness of dissemination strategies aimed at increasing the adoption of patient-centered behavioral health interventions by identifying facilitators and barriers to the adoption process.

Data collection activities involve the administration of five separate surveys (a baseline survey, a followup survey, and three dissemination evaluation surveys) to individuals typically involved in the decisionmaking process Start Printed Page 24501pertaining to the adoption of new behavioral interventions at 40 community health organizations and 40 community behavioral health organizations across the United States. Enrolled organizations will submit their responses for all surveys via Qualtrics, a third-party, online Web-based survey platform.

The estimated burden for data collection is 940 hours across a total of 400 participants. Using median hourly wage estimates reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, May 2009 National Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates, and a loading rate of 25%, the estimated total cost to respondents is $63,057.04. A breakdown of these estimates is presented in Table 1 below.
