Information Collection Request Title: Think Cultural Health (TCH) Web site Quality Improvement Effort—OMB No. 0990-0407 REVISION-HHS/OS/OMH

Abstract: The Office of Minority Health (OMH), Office of the Secretary (OS), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is requesting approval by OMB on a revised data collection. The Think Cultural Health (TCH) Web site is an initiative of the HHS OMH's Center for Linguistic and Cultural Competence in Health Care (CLCCHC), and is a repository of the latest resources and tools to promote cultural and linguistic competency in health and health care. The TCH Web site is unlike other government Web sites in that its suite of e-learning programs affords health and health care professionals the ability to earn continuing education credits through training in cultural and linguistic competency. The revision to this information collection request includes the online Web site registration form, course/unit evaluations specific to the resource or e-learning program course/unit completed, follow up surveys, focus groups, and key informant interviews.

Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The data will be used to ensure that the offerings on the TCH Web site are relevant, useful, and appropriate to their target audiences. The findings from the data collection will be of interest to HHS OMH in supporting maintenance and revisions of the offerings on the TCH Web site.
