Proposed Project: Prevention Communication Formative Research—Revision—OMB No. 0990-0281—Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.

Abstract: The information collected will be used as formative communication research to provide guidance to the development and implementation of its disease prevention and health promotion communication and education efforts, including the Physical Activity and Dietary Guidelines for Americans. It is necessary to obtain consumer input to better understand the informative needs, attitudes, and beliefs of the audience in order to tailor messages, as well as to assist with clarity, understandability, and acceptance of prototyped messages, materials, and online tools. This generic clearance request describes data collection activities involving a limited set of focus groups, individual interviews, Web-based concept and prototype testing, and usability and effects testing to establish a deeper understanding of the interests and needs of consumers and health intermediaries for disease prevention and health promotion information and tools. The program is requesting a three year clearance.
