Need and Use of Information Collection: The NIMH Database of Cognitive Training and Remediation Studies (DCTRS) is an integrated database that includes study- and subject-level data from studies of cognitive remediation (CR) in schizophrenia. DCTRS will allow NIMH staff and interested investigators to examine the ways in which various patient characteristics, intervention approaches and features, and treatment combinations affect responses to remediation. The DCTRS Study Information Form and Data Submission Agreement are necessary for the “Submitter” to request permission to submit study data to the NIMH DCTRS for general research purposes. The primary use of this information is to collect submitter information and study information for inclusion in the NIMH DCTRS database. The DCTRS data submission agreement includes two forms: (1) The data submission form that includes the terms, agreement, submitter information and certifications, and (2) the study information form which collects de-identified data for each study.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 60.
