1. Orta, Alicia. NIPT - Emerging Issues: Genetic Counselors' Experiences & Perspectives with Incidental Findings.

Degree: 2016, Brandeis University

Since companies began marketing the analysis of cell-free DNA in the maternal plasma as non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) to screen for fetal aneuploidy and other conditions, healthcare providers and patients alike have encountered discordant invasive and non-invasive testing results, with unexpected incidental findings as a rare cause. The purpose of this study was to investigate prenatal genetic counselors’ practices and perspectives regarding counseling patients for the possibility of incidental findings identified through NIPT. We emailed a 58-question anonymous survey to the NSGC membership to recruit clinical prenatal genetic counselors that offer NIPT. Of the 147 survey respondents, 74% obtain informed consent for NIPT verbally and over half (54%) do not involve the patient in the documentation of informed consent, as the provider is responsible for documenting the patient’s consent. More than half (57%) do not always include the possibility of incidental findings in their pre-test counseling discussions. Yet, 47% of the genetic counselor respondents have had a suspected or confirmed incidental finding identified through NIPT. Almost all respondents indicated that post-test counseling a patient with an incidental finding is challenging, citing a lack of information and variation among NIPT laboratories with how they communicate incidental findings and a lack of clinical guidelines from professional societies as the most important factors. From counselors’ responses, unknown maternal conditions account for a large proportion of the incidental findings identified by NIPT. Given these findings we recommend that pre-test counseling for NIPT include a discussion of possible unexpected findings and to establish clear expectations for the categories of results that may be returned, the creation of professional guidelines outlining how incidental findings should be discussed in both pre- and post-test counseling discussions, and the creation of a centralized database for the collection of findings, outcomes, and clinical follow-up to facilitate appropriate care for patients.

2. Aguirre, Marcelino J. Effects of Portland Cement Pre-Hydration on Shelf Life of Post Tensioning Grout.

Degree: M.E., Civil Engineering - Civil and Coastal Engineering, 2016, University of Florida

This study contains a summary of research performed to reproduce and determine the cause of soft grout, which has been discovered in several bridges around the United States and abroad. In these bridges, the grout located in the post tensioning (PT) ducts was found to be unhydrated (soft) and contain high levels of moisture and potentially damaging chemicals several years after construction was complete. Advisors/Committee Members: HAMILTON,HOMER ROBERT,III (committee chair).

Subjects/Keywords: Average linear density; Cements; Humidity; Hydraulic cements; Microwaves; Moisture content; Particle size classes; Screening tests; Shelf life; Test methods; cement  – fillers  – grout  – modified-incline-tube-test  – post-tensioning  – prehydration  – soft-grout  – through-solution-hydration  – topochemical-hydration  – water-absorption

3. Heckroodt, Annétia Sophia. Evaluering van skoolbeginners met die oog op effektiewe aanvangsonderrig.

Degree: 1995, University of South Africa

With compulsory education in the New South· Africa, an increase in the number of school beginners can be expected, together with the probability of large gaps in their readiness for school. In £his study, materials have been developed together with a structure for the organisation of teaching_~!?.r trainers/subject advisers, teachers and pupils, to ensure effective education for school beginners. The "Battery for the Assessment of Bridging period Yields" (BABY) has been developed as a valid, realiable and usable school readiness battery of tests for teachers as unregistered test users. The Pre-Test for division into homogeneous ability groups is applied shortly after entrance to school. The Battery of Diagnostic Tests ensures continuous evaluation of pupils during the school readiness programme. The Post-Test is applied at the end of the first term. In this dynamic interaction between tester and pupil in an instruction-test-instruction cycle, the pupils' readiness to progress with formal instruction is continuously evaluated.; Met verpligte onderwys in die Nuwe Suid-Afrika, kan 'n toename in die getal swart skoolbeginners ve:wag word, asook dat daar in hulle skoolvoorbereiding groot leemtes kan voorkom. In die onderhawige studie is hulpmiddels en 'n struktuur vir onderwysorganisasie vir opleiers/vakadviseurs, onderwyseresse en leerlinge ontwikkel om aan skoolbeginners effektiewe onderwys te verseker. Die "Battery for the Assessment of Bridging period Yields" (BABY), 'n geldige, betroubare en bruikbare skoolgereedheidstoetsbattery vir onderwyseresse as ongeregistreerde toetsgebruikers, is ontwikkel. Die Voortoets vtr indeling in homogene bevoegdheidsgroepe word kort na skooltoetrede toegepas. Die Diagnostiese Toetsbattery verseker deurlopende evaluering van leerlinge gedurende die skoolgereedmakingsprogram. Die Natoets word aan die einde van die eerste kwartaal toegepas. In hierdie dinamiese interaksie tussen toetser en leerling in 'n onderrig-toets-onderrig siklus, word leerlinge se gereedheid om met formele onderrig voort te gaan, deurlopend geevalueer. Advisors/Committee Members: Engelbrecht, C. S (advisor).
