Proposed Collection: Assessment of Oncology Nursing Education and Training in Low and Middle Income Countries, 0925-NEW, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: This is a request for OMB to approve the Assessment of Oncology Nursing Education and Training in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs). NCI-Designated Cancer Centers have a range of international activities, some of which are funded by NCI, but many of which are not. These international activities may include oncology nursing education and training in LMICs, but the extent of these activities across cancer centers is unknown. The proposed assessment requests information about oncology nursing education and training projects including: Descriptions of projects, partner organizations, types of activities, cost, and impact. NCI's Center for Global Health (CGH) is in the process of developing its strategic plan for oncology nursing education in LMICs. This information will help inform this strategic planning process and provide evidence to inform decisions on potential investments in grants for oncology nursing education in LMICs. Additionally, this information will be used in an online, interactive map that is being developed by CGH which will allow external organizations, such as cancer centers, to explore what projects are being done in which countries, which will facilitate collaborations and minimize duplication. The frequency of the data collection will be once per year although respondents may have more than one response if they have up to three projects.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 51.
