This study aimed to explore attitudes and preferences towards non-invasive prenatal testing (NITP) among nursing students and students with other majors and to identify factors influencing their attitudes and preferences. This study was conducted with 382 college students in Korea. Collected data were analyzed using descriptive analyses, t-test for quantitative data and a content analysis for the open-ended questions. More than half of the nursing students reported that they had heard about NIPT while only a small number of their counterparts did. Nursing students were more positive about NIPT than their counterparts and more likely to indicate that their beliefs played a role in determining if they would choose to undergo NIPT. Findings from this study suggest there is a need to educate college students, especially nursing students about NIPT because they need to be prepared to provide culturally and socially sensitive care to patients and their families
Although there has been active research on the enhancement of physical functions and sociality through physical activities in not only general children adolescents but adolescents suffering from intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD), that there is a lack of research on adults suffering from IDD and that the population suffering from developmental disabilities are some significant points. The difference was assessed through comparing the averages of the measured results before and after participating in 20 program sessions (paired T-test) and the program satisfaction and behavioral changes of the participants were analyzed through open-ended questionnaire. The measurement results of shuttle run, sit-ups, push-ups and sit-and-stand for 30 seconds all showed statistically enhanced post-test results compared to pre-test results, and the measurement time for sit-and-stands for 5 times decreased significantly. It was verified that there were positive effects in enhancements of basic physical strength including strength, endurance, quickness and agility, and participation in physical activities when adults with IDD participated in a total of 20 weekly program sessions with the purpose of enhancing physical strength, enhancing physical activities, and developing sociability
