Information Collection Request Title: Education and Training of Healthcare Providers as a Coordinated Public Health Response to Violence Against Women

Abstract: The Office on Women's Health (OWH) recently received an approval by OMB 0990-0422 which expires August 31, 2015; however OWH is now requesting a one year extension to further conduct the pilot and evaluation of an eLearning course developed as part of the “Education and Training of Healthcare Providers as a Coordinated Public Health Response to Violence Against Women Project”. The purpose of this data collection is to gather data from healthcare providers who have volunteered to participate in the pilot and evaluation of an e-learning course designed to educate and train healthcare providers on how to respond to intimate partner violence (IPV) against women. Information obtained from this data collection will be used to identify areas of improvement and measure the effectiveness of the e-learning course in educating healthcare providers about IPV, addressing attitudinal barriers to IPV screening, and increasing IPV screening in clinical practice. This data will also help identify any problems in the navigation and functioning of the e-learning course. The results of this evaluation will assist OWH in making revisions to the course and subsequently coordinating a national launch, making the e-learning course available to healthcare providers across the U.S. All data collection forms and activities will be used within a year time frame.

Likely Respondents: The respondents for this pilot and evaluation are healthcare providers (physicians, nurses, and social workers) who are members of professional associations and who provide services in Nevada, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.
