Proposed Collection: Evaluation of a Kidney Disease Education Program with Promotores in the Hispanic Community, 0925—NEW, National Kidney Disease Education Program, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: NKDEP is developing a kidney disease education program to raise awareness among the Hispanic community at risk for kidney disease. Since diabetes is the most common cause of kidney disease, the program is being developed for inclusion in existing diabetes programs being conducted by “promotores de salud” (Spanish/English-speaking community health workers). A pilot evaluation will assess: (a) Overall quality of the program from the client and promotor/a perspective, including strengths and weaknesses of the program and the training, and areas for program improvement; (b) effectiveness of the program on the clients (the community members being educated); and (c) effectiveness of materials and training, including promotores' ability to deliver education to the client and administer the client pre-test/post-test surveys. The pilot study will deliver strategic and actionable guidance for refining the educational and training materials for national dissemination. Based on outcomes from the pilot study, a national evaluation is planned that will use the client pre-test/post-test surveys to assess: (a) Knowledge gains about kidney disease, (b) awareness of NKDEP resources and importance of kidney health, (c) reported behavior change outcomes and (d) reported health status.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 101 (see table below).
