  • 'He should feel your pain': Patient insights on patient-provider communication in Rwanda. [Journal Article]
  • AJAfr J Prim Health Care Fam Med 2018 Apr 16; 10(1):e1-e11
  • Cubaka VK, Schriver M, … Kallestrup P
  • CONCLUSIONS:  The expressed preferences, including those of patients with limited literacy, aligned well with the patient-centred care model. There were indications of a power imbalance weighing on the provider's side. Although patients with limited literacy were reliant on providers for decision-making, they were ready to be more involved in the care, suggesting a potential for improved patient involvement even for patients with paternalistic care preferences. These patients' insights can impact policies and curricula to optimise clinical practice. Generated knowledge will contribute to the indispensable yet underdeveloped field of health communication in sub-Saharan Africa. Findings call for more inclusion of patient perspectives in the patient-provider encounter. This could require more training of professionals and research on the topic, both in Rwanda and in other regions.
  • Altered white matter connectivity associated with visual hallucinations following occipital stroke. [Journal Article]
  • BBBrain Behav 2018 May 21; :e01010
  • Rafique SA, Richards JR, Steeves JKE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cortical remapping and the disruption of communication between visual cortices and remote regions are consistent with our previous functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data showing imbalanced functional activity of the same regions in this patient (Rafique et al, 2016, Neurology, 87, 1493-1500). Long-term adaptive and disruptive changes in white matter connectivity may account for the rare nature of cases presenting with chronic and continuous visual hallucinations.
