Proposed Collection: Palliative Care: Conversations Matter® Phase Two Evaluation, 0925-NEW, National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: The NINR Palliative Care: Conversations Matter® initiative, which launched in FY 2014, is now in its second phase. The first phase was focused on providing materials and tools to assist health care providers in having sometimes difficult conversations with children and families about palliative care. The second phase of the campaign, launched in FY 2015, focuses on children, parents, and families. The Palliative Care: Conversations Matter® Phase Two evaluation will assess the information and materials being disseminated to children, parents, and families. Survey findings will help (1) determine if the campaign is effective, relevant, and useful to the families and caregivers of children living with serious illnesses; (2) to better understand the information needs of families and caregivers to inform future campaign efforts; and (3) examine how effective the campaign materials are in providing families and caregivers with information on palliative care.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 400 hours.
