Proposed Collection: The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) Comprehensive Evaluation Plan, 0925-0552, Expiration Date 10/31/2015, REVISION, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease (NIDDK), National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Need and Use of Information Collection: The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) is a partnership of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and more than 200 public and private organizations. The long-term goal of the NDEP is to reduce the burden of diabetes and pre-diabetes in the United States, and its territories, by facilitating the adoption of proven strategies to prevent or delay the onset of diabetes and its complications.
The NDEP evaluation will document the extent to which the NDEP program has been implemented and how successful it has been in meeting program objectives, outlined in the NDEP Strategic Plan. The evaluation relies heavily on data gathered from existing national surveys such as National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), among others for this information. This is a continued collection of additional primary data from NDEP target audiences on some key process and impact measures that are necessary to effectively evaluate the program. The audiences targeted by the NDEP include people at risk for diabetes, people with diabetes and their families, and the public.
OMB approval is requested for changing the data collection methodology from a random-digit-dialing (RDD) telephone survey to a probability-based web-based survey as well as an update of the survey questionnaire which has not been updated since it was first developed in 2006. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 833. This represents a modest increase in the burden amount from the previously approved 749 hours to 833 hours, an additional 84 hours overall. This burden reflects an increase of 5 minutes per participant due to survey content changes and an additional 400 participants.
