  • Deficits in history taking skills among final year medical students in a family medicine course: A study from KSA. [Journal Article]
    J Taibah Univ Med Sci 2018; 13(5):415-421Alrasheedi AA
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study, the students' performance was generally better with respect to communication skills and psychosocial history. However, the students showed poor knowledge in other aspects of history-taking skills as they failed to formulate more than one hypothesis and to ask about alarm symptoms. Teaching communication and clinical reasoning skills and connecting physical and psychosocial aspects of patient care promotes understanding of the patient as a whole and should be taught in all courses of the clinical phase, with emphasis on bedside training.

  • Hypertension management: experiences, wishes and concerns among older people-a qualitative study. [Journal Article]
    BMJ Open 2019; 9(8):e030742van Bussel E, Reurich L, … Ligthart S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Older people describe having little involvement in hypertension management, although they have several concerns. Since GPs are also known to be hesitant to bring up this subject, we signal a conspiracy of silence about antihypertensive medication. Through breaking this silence, GPs can facilitate shared decision-making on hypertension management and better tailored care.
  • Motivational interviewing for smoking cessation. [Review]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019; 7:CD006936Lindson N, Thompson TP, … Aveyard P
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is insufficient evidence to show whether or not MI helps people to stop smoking compared with no intervention, as an addition to other types of behavioural support for smoking cessation, or compared with other types of behavioural support for smoking cessation. It is also unclear whether more intensive MI is more effective than less intensive MI. All estimates of treatment effect were of low certainty because of concerns about bias in the trials, imprecision and inconsistency. Consequently, future trials are likely to change these conclusions. There is almost no evidence on whether MI for smoking cessation improves mental well-being.
