Health Professional Application for Training (HPAT)—New —National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
CDC/NCHHSTP is requesting OMB approval to collect data that will be used to monitor and evaluate performance of CDC funded grantees that offer Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) and Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention training, training assistance, and capacity building assistance to physicians, nurses, disease intervention specialists, health educators and other public health professionals. Information collection approval is sought for three years.
CDC/NCHHSTP will use the Health Professional Application for Training (HPAT) for this data collection. This instrument was previously approved under OMB clearance #0920-0017 as a Participant Information Form, but was removed from that information collection request upon its most recent revision. The HPAT allows CDC grantees to use a single instrument when partnering with other Health and Human Services (HHS) funded training programs and does not duplicate information collection efforts. The HPAT will serve as the official training application form used for training activities conducted by the CDC-funded STD/HIV Prevention Training Centers' (PTCs) and the HIV Capacity Building Assistance (CBAs) grantees who offer classroom and experiential training, web-based training, clinical consultation, and capacity building assistance to maintain and enhance the capacity of health care professionals to control and prevent STDs and HIV.
The HPAT will also be used to collect information from the training participants regarding their: (1) Occupations, professions, and functional roles; (2) principal employment settings; (3) location of their work settings; and (4) programmatic and population foci of their work. This data collection provides CDC with information to determine whether the training grantees are reaching their target audiences in terms of provider type, the types of organizations in which participants work, the focus of their work and the population groups and geographic areas served; the data collection is also used to triage and assign CBA provider requests.
The 7,400 respondents represent an average of the number of health professionals trained by the CBA and PTC grantees during the years 2010 and 2011. There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
It is estimated that this collection will involve a total of 617 annual burden hours.
