Proposed Collection

Palliative Care: Conversations Matter Evaluation -0925—New—National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Need and Use of Information Collection: NINR developed Palliative Care: Conversations Matter, a pediatric palliative care campaign to address the communications challenges faced by health care providers who recommend and provide palliative care to pediatric populations. NINR is launching this effort to increase the use of palliative care for children living with serious illness or life-limiting conditions. The Palliative Care: Conversations Matter evaluation will assess the information and materials being disseminated as part of the official campaign. Survey findings will help (1) Determine if the campaign is effective, relevant, and useful to health care providers who recommend and provide palliative care to pediatric populations; (2) to better understand the information needs of health care providers to inform future campaign efforts; and (3) examine how effective the campaign materials are in starting and continuing a pediatric palliative care conversation and addressing the communications needs of health care providers around this topic.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 200.
