Scope of Practice for Reproductive Health: Assuring a Trained Medical Workforce in the Era of the Affordable Care Act
Hogan T, Smith T, Arbar M, Scott LT, Mason C, Hoover J, Marcell AV, Eikner D, Rompalo AM, McKenna R
Background: In 2010, the Male Training Center for Family Planning and Reproductive Health (MTC), a partnership between the Family Planning Council and Johns Hopkins Medicine, conducted a survey of licensing boards. The survey determined whether providers specializing in  female healthcare were within their scope of practice when offering reproductive healthcare services to males in Title X settings.

What qualities do providers identify as best for Point of Care STI Tests and do opinions differ by practice, region and country?
Rompalo A, Hsieh YH, Guy R, Natoli L, Fairley K, Gupta S, Radcliffe K, Hogan MT, Jett-Goheen M, Gaydos C
Conclusions:  Priorities for POCT development differ among clinicians from developing vs. developed countries. Participants from developing countries ranked early HIV seroconversion as top priority while those from developed countries chose chlamydia. Participants from developing countries consistently chose test that were less expensive compared to those from developed countries who chose tests that were more expensive but had higher sensitivity and specificity.

Microwave-Accelerated Metal-Enhanced Fluorescence (MAMEF) Point-of-Care Test for the Detection of Chlamydia trachomatis
Melendez JH, Huppert J, Hesse E, Jett-Goheen M, Quinn N, Gaydos CA, Geddes CD
Conclusions:  MAMEF is an ultra-fast and sensitive approach for detection of CT. Our CT assay can specifically detect over 80% of cases in less than 10 minutes. Dry vaginal swabs are an effective collection method for MAMEF testing.

Copan ESwabTM, a liquid based microbiology device, can be used for the preservation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae for culture and for detection of CT/NG by Gen-Probe® APTIMA® COMBO 2 Assay
Mary Jett-Goheen, Mathilda Barnes, Della Duncan, Nicole Quinn, Khalil Ghanem, Charlotte Gaydos
Conclusions:  The ability of ESwabTM to maintain culture viability of NG up to 24 hours until NAAT testing is completed could eliminate the necessity to perform NG cultures on all patients. ESwabTM can be used for collecting the initial sample, for testing by NAAT assay, and then NG culture can be performed for susceptibility testing for all NG NAAT+ patients.

An easy to use real time PCR test for Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae providing results that can guide treatment choice before the patient leaves the clinic
Charlotte A. Gaydos, Barbara Van Der Pol, Mary Jett-Goheen, Mathilda Barnes, Nicole Quinn, Carey Clark, Grace E. Daniel, Paula B. Dixon, Edward W. Hook III
Conclusions:  The GeneXpert® System is a closed, self-contained, fully-integrated, automated platform for CT/NG testing that demonstrated excellent sensitivities and specificities in women and men. This relatively rapid short-turn-around-test can provide results to guide treatment decisions before patients leave the clinical setting. Such rapid treatment could potentially improve chlamydia and gonorrhea control efforts.

Novel emergency department registration kiosk for HIV screening increases engagement of high risk patients and is cost-effective
Yu-Hsiang Hsieh, Stephen Peterson, Megan Gauvey-Kern, Charlotte Gaydos, David Holtgrave, Richard E. Rothman
Conclusions:  ED kiosk-based HIV screening resulted in testing significantly greater portions of patients with 'high risk' behaviors and yielded higher rates of newly identified HIV+ patients. Use of kiosks for offering HIV screening was potentially more cost-effective than a counselor-based bedside approach per new diagnosis identified.

Performance of a New Rapid Real-Time PCR Test for Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae Which Can Be Used to Provide Results for Patients While in a Clinical Setting
Charlotte A. Gaydos, Barbara Van Der Pol, Mary Jett-Goheen, Mathilda Barnes, Nicole Quinn, Carey Clark, Grace Daniel, Paula Dixon, Edward W. Hook III
Conclusions: The GeneXpert® System is a rapid, self-contained, automated platform for CT/NG testing that demonstrated excellent sensitivities and specificities in symptomatic and asymptomatic women and men. The Xpert assay can provide results to guide treatment decisions before patients leave the doctors office, clinic, emergency department, or in many other settings, such as potentially even a pharmacy.

Gaydos C, Solis M, Hsieh Y-H, Nour S, Jett-Goheen M, Rothman R
Conclusions: Kiosk initiated testing proved to be highly feasible, acceptable, and accurate method of conducting rapid HIV self-testing in this pilot study; however, rates of engagement were only moderate, with almost half of patients volunteering to perform an HIV test....

Kiosk-Facilitated Patient Self Testing for HIV in an Emergency Department Rapid HIV Screening Program
Yu-Hsiang Hsieh, Megan Gauvey-Kern, Charlotte Gaydos, Alonzo Woodfield, Stephen Peterson, Richard Rothman
Conclusions: This is the first demonstration of kiosks for engaging patients and guiding HIV self-testing in a health care setting. Notably, while rates of agreement for self-testing were similar to facilitator testing, more than half of patients declined to perform their own test; further, a substantial number of patients needed assistance from staff or failed to complete self-testing....

So They Can Know: A description and initial evaluation of a new email-based STI partner notification service
Jessica Ladd
Overview: So They Can Know is a website designed to increase rates of partner notificationfor sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The website provides information on partner notification and allows users to anonymously email their sex partners. This poster describes the process behind the creation and planned evaluation of So They Can Know, in the hopes that it might inform the creation and evaluation of evidence-based public health innovations, particularly websites, in the future.

Microwave-Accelerated Metal-Enhanced Fluorescence (MAMEF) Point of Care Test for the Detection of Chlamydia trachomatis
Gaydos CA, Melendez JH, Jett-Goheen M, Huppert J, Geddes CD
Conclusions: The CT MAMEF assay demonstrated high sensitivity and specificity when using vaginal samples transported as dry swabs. MAMEF platform is a significant step forward in the development of a point of care test for CT.

Optimization and Clinical Testing of a Microwave-Accelerated Metal-Enhanced Fluorescence (MAMEF) Assay for the Detection of Chlamydia trachomatis

Melendez JH, Gaydos CA, Geddes CD
Conclusions: Cell lysis and DNA fragmentation is achieved in 30 seconds, and gold and aluminum lysing triangles are equally effective. Dry vaginal swabs are an effective collection method and sensitivity of the MAMEF assay is very high using dry swabs rehydrated in water. Rapid lysis of bacterial cells, fragmentation and detection of genomic DNA can be carried out in less than 10 minutes.

Johns Hopkins University Center for Sexually Transmitted Diseases Point of Care Tests (POCT):  A One Stop Shop for Facilitating POCT Development
Charlotte Gaydos, Mary Jett-Goheen, Terry Hogan, Yu-Hsiang Hsieh, Anne Rompalo, Joany Jackman
Conclusion:  There is a disconnect between industry and clinicians regarding the perceived barriers to POCT test development and ultimately acceptance.  It is possible to achieve the most realistic test by allowing users to make trade offs on test attributes but not test characteristics.
