The National Cancer Institute, NCI, National Institutes of Health, may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

In compliance with section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has submitted to the Office of management and Budget (OMB) a request for review and approval of the information collection listed below.

Proposed Collection: Health Information National Trends Survey V (HINTS V), OMB 0925-0538, Exp 04/30/2016. REINSTATEMENT WITH CHANGE, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: HINTS V will provide NCI with a comprehensive assessment of the American public's current access to and use of information about cancer across the cancer care continuum from cancer prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. The content of the survey will focus on understanding the degree to which members of the general population understand vital cancer prevention messages. More importantly, this NCI survey will couple knowledge-related questions with inquiries into the communication channels through which understanding is being obtained, and assessment of cancer-related behavior. The analyses enabled by the survey will allow NCI and the cancer communication community to refine communication priorities, identify deficits in cancer-related population knowledge, and develop evidence-based strategies for selecting the most effective channels to reach identified demographic population groups.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 2,017.
