Experiences of Adults Using Feedback-Based Technology to Improve Physical Function in Rehabilitation: Study Protocol for a Qualitative Systematic Review  [PDF]
Caitlin Hamilton, Annie McCluskey, Meryl Lovarini, Tarcisio Folly Campos, Leanne Hassett
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (OJTR) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojtr.2016.43011
Abstract: Question: What are the experiences of adults using feedback-based technology to improve their physical function during rehabilitation? Design: A systematic review with meta-synthesis of qualitative studies is proposed. Participants: Adults (aged ≥ 15 years) participating in neurological or aged care rehabilitation. Intervention: Feedback-based technology (technology providing feedback to the user about task performance or dose of practice) used as an intervention to improve physical function or physical activity levels. Outcomes: Experiences of using feedback-based technology (learning, accepting, adopting, practicing and progressing), as well as barriers and facilitators to use. Methods: Meta-synthesis of qualitative studies involving the following steps: 1) a systematic search of 10 electronic databases and grey literature, and hand-searching of reference lists of included studies, 2) screening of search results and abstracts for study selection, 3) data extraction, 4) quality appraisal of included studies using the Critical Appraisal Skills Programme (CASP) checklist, and 5) qualitative synthesis to identify common themes and concepts across studies. The Enhancing Transparency in Reporting the Synthesis of Qualitative Research (ENTREQ) statement will be used to report study methods and results. Discussion: This meta-synthesis will provide new knowledge about how feedback-based technologies are currently being used in rehabilitation, and describe users’ experiences.

Schizophrenia and delusional disorders with onset in later life
Hassett, Anne;
Revista Brasileira de Psiquiatria , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-44462002000500015
Abstract: schizophrenia-spectrum illness is most commonly associated with an onset in early adulthood. when non-affective psychotic symptoms emerge for the first time in later life, the clinical presentation has both similarities and differences with earlier-onset syndromes. this situation has resulted in continuing debate about the nosological status of late-onset psychosis, and whether there are particular risk factors associated with this late-life peak in incidence. although early cognitive decline is frequently identified in these patients, studies, to date, have not established if there is a relationship with the dementing illnesses of old age. sensory impairment, social isolation, and a family history of schizophrenia have been associated with late-onset psychosis, but appear to exert a nonspecific influence on vulnerability. while diagnostic issues remain unresolved, clinicians need to formulate treatment strategies that most appropriately address the constellation of symptoms in the clinical presentation of their psychotic elderly patients.
Schizophrenia and delusional disorders with onset in later life

Correlation for Surfaces of General Type
Brendan Hassett
Mathematics , 1995,
Abstract: The main geometric result of this paper is that given any family of surfaces of general type f:X-->B, for sufficiently large n the fiber product X^n_B dominates a variety of general type. This result is especially interesting when it is combined with Lang's Conjecture. This states that for a variety V of general type over a number field K, the K rational points V(K) are not Zariski dense in V. Assuming Lang's Conjecture, we prove the existence of a uniform bound on the degree of the Zariski closure of the K-rational points of a surface of general type.
Weak approximation and rationally connected varieties over function fields of curves
Brendan Hassett
Mathematics , 2010,
Abstract: This is a survey of weak approximation over complex function fields, touching on the Koll'ar-Miyaoka-Mori theorem, places of good and bad reduction, the special case of rational surfaces, rationally simply connected varieties, and applications to low-degree complete intersections.
Moduli spaces of weighted pointed stable curves
Brendan Hassett
Mathematics , 2002,
Abstract: A weighted pointed curve consists of a nodal curve and a sequence of marked smooth points, each assigned a number between zero and one. A subset of the marked points may coincide if the sum of the corresponding weights is no greater than one. We construct moduli spaces for these objects using methods of the log minimal model program, and describe the induced birational morphisms between moduli spaces as the weights are varied. In the genus zero case, we explain the connection to Geometric Invariant Theory quotients of points in the projective line, and to compactifications of moduli spaces studied by Kapranov, Keel, and Losev-Manin.
Classical and minimal models of the moduli space of curves of genus two
Brendan Hassett
Mathematics , 2004,
Abstract: This semi-expository paper discusses the log minimal model program as applied to the moduli space of curves, especially in the case of curves of genus two. Log canonical models for these moduli spaces can often be constructed using the techniques of Geometric Invariant Theory. In genus two, this boils down to the invariant theory of binary sextics, which was developed systematically in the 19th century.
Nutrition Screening and Referrals in Two Rural Australian Oncology Clinics  [PDF]
Emma Bohringer, Leanne Brown
Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2016.712103
Abstract: Malnutrition is common, and is a significant contributing factor to morbidity and mortality in the oncology setting. Previous research suggests that dietetic services in rural oncology clinics need to be well organized, timely and flexible with routine screening processes. In the absence of routine nutrition screening, it is hypothesized that oncology patients are only referred to dietetic services when malnutrition is overt or advanced. The aim of this study was to describe and compare dietetic services in two rural Australian oncology clinics and investigate nutrition screening and referral practices to determine if oncology patients at nutritional risk were appropriately referred. A retrospective file audit of medical and treatment records was conducted for a sample of oncology patients to determine the proportion of patients at risk of malnutrition by using the Malnutrition Screening Tool retrospectively. Dietetic treatment statistics and key stakeholders were consulted to compare dietetic service provision across the two sites. Seventy-eight percent of patients (n = 129) were retrospectively determined to be at nutritional risk during the study period, however, only 66% of these patients were referred to a dietitian. Dietetic treatment statistics varied across the two sites ranging from 26 to 62 treated patients, an average of 2.4 to 4.5 dietetic interventions per patient and an average difference in patient intervention time of 62 minutes during the 12-month study period. This study confirmed findings from previous research, highlighting that without routine nutrition screening in oncology, at least one third of patients at nutritional risk were failing to be identified and referred to dietetic services for appropriate treatment. Routine nutrition screening should be implemented to standardise and prioritise dietetic service provision, and oncology specific funding should be allocated to the dietetic service to ensure that staffing is adequate to provide a timely service.

International Mindedness and ‘Social Control’
Leanne Cause
Asian Social Science , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v5n9p32
Abstract: This research project explored effective ways of developing international mindedness. International mindedness is a term that now appears in the mission statement of many international schools yet there is a need for a clearer account of ways in which to develop internationally minded students. Many teachers and researchers leave the development of international mindedness to fate. However, external and internal forces such as planning, school practices and rituals, each teacher’s own actions, attitudes and behaviours, can all work to inhibit or foster the development of international mindedness in students. This paper discusses some of the outcomes from this recent research project focusing in particular on the positive implications inquiry learning can have on the development of international mindedness in an International Baccalaureate school implementing the Primary Years Program. It is argued that through inquiry learning and other processes in the curriculum, assessment and pedagogy, international schools can achieve the goals of their mission statement in a way that allows each student to come to their own realisation of international mindedness.
