Bei den Dystonien handelt es sich um eine heterogene Gruppe verschiedenartiger Erkrankungen mit ähnlichen Symptomen. Klassifikation, Differenzialdiagnosen und Therapien sind komplex und sollten von spezialisierten Zentren durchgeführt werden. Die Erkrankungen können vom Säuglings- bis ins späte Erwachsenenalter auftreten. Das Spektrum reicht von oligosymptomatischen Formen bis hin zu solchen, die schwerste Beeinträchtigungen in der Lebensqualität und Behinderungen bedingen können. Zur konservativen Therapie werden Krankengymnastik, orale Medikamente sowie lokale Injektionsbehandlungen eingesetzt. Von neurochirurgisch operativer Seite existieren die Neuromodulationstherapien (implantierbare Pumpen, Tiefe Hirnstimulation) sowie ablative Verfahren. Die neuere Literatur zeigt, dass insbesondere die kognitive Entwicklung bei Kindern umso günstiger beeinflusst werden kann, je früher eine effektive Therapie erfolgt. [less ▲]

Diabetes mellitus prevalence has been estimated at 5.1% in Rwanda. Several factors, including an increase in screening and diagnosis programmes, the urbanization of the population, and changes in lifestyle are likely to contribute to a sharp increase in the prevalence of diabetes mellitus in the next decade. Patients with low health literacy levels are often unable to recognise the signs and symptoms of diabetes mellitus, and may access their health provider late, hence presenting with more complications. The Rwandan health care system is facing a severe shortage in human resources. In response to the need for a better management of non-communicable diseases at primary health care level, a new type of community health workers was introduced: the home-based care practitioners (HBCPs). Approximately 200 HBCPs were trained and deployed in selected areas (“cells”) in nine hospitals across the country. There is growing evidence for the efficacy of interventions using mobile devices in low- and middle-income countries. In Rwanda, there is an urgent call to using mobile health interventions for the prevention and management of non-communicable diseases. The D²Rwanda (Digital Diabetes in Rwanda) research project aims at responding to this call. The overall objectives of the D²Rwanda project are: a) to determine the efficacy of an integrated programme for the management of diabetes in Rwanda, which would include monthly patient assessments by HBCPs and an educational and self-management mobile health patient tool, and; b) to qualitatively explore the ways these interventions would be enacted, their challenges and effects, and changes in the patients’ health behaviours and HBCPs’ work satisfaction. The project employed a mixed-methods sequential explanatory design consisting of a one-year cluster randomised controlled trial with two interventions and followed by focus group discussions with patients and HBCPs. The dissertation presents three studies from the D²Rwanda project. The first study aimed at describing the protocol of the research project, reporting the research questions, inclusion and exclusion criteria, primary and secondary outcomes, measurements, power calculation, randomisation methods, data collection, analysis plan, implementation fidelity and ethical considerations. The aim of the second study was to report on the translation and cultural adaptation of the Problem Areas in Diabetes (PAID) questionnaire and the evaluation of its psychometric properties. First, the questionnaire was translated following a standard protocol. Second, 29 participants were interviewed before producing a final version. Third, we examined a sample of 266 adult patients living with diabetes to determine the psychometric characteristics of the questionnaire. The full scale showed good internal reliability (Cronbach’s α = 0.88). A four-factor model with subdimensions of emotional, treatment, food-related and social-support problems was found to be an adequately approximate fit (RMSEA = 0.056; CFI = 0.951; TLI = 0.943). The mean total PAID score of the sample was high (48.21). Important cultural and contextual differences were noted, urging a more thorough examination of conceptual equivalence with other cultures. The third study aimed at reporting on the disease-related quality of life of patients living with diabetes mellitus in a non-representative sample in Rwanda and to identify potential predictors. This cross-sectional study was part of the baseline assessment of the clinical controlled trial. Between January and August 2019, 206 adult patients living with diabetes were recruited. Disease-specific quality of life was measured using the Kinyarwanda version of the Diabetes-39 (D-39) questionnaire, which was translated and cross-culturally adapted beforehand by the same group of researchers. A haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test was performed on all patients. Socio-demographic and clinical data were collected, including medical history, disease-related complications and comorbidities. “Anxiety and worry” and “sexual functioning” were the two most affected dimensions. Hypertension was the most frequent comorbidity (49.0% of participants). The duration of the disease and HbA1c values were not correlated with any of the D-39 dimensions. The five dimensions of quality of life were predicted differentially by gender, age, years of education, marital status, achieving a HbA1c of 7%, hypertension, presence of complications and hypoglycaemic episodes. A moderating effect was identified between use of insulin and achieving a target HbA1c of 7% in the “diabetes control” scale. Further prospective studies are needed to determine causal relationships.

The Community- and MHealth-Based Integrated Management of Diabetes in Primary Healthcare in Rwanda: the D²Rwanda Study (which stands for Digital Diabetes Study in Rwanda) is a twin PhD project, developed in collaboration with Aarhus University (AU) and the University of Luxembourg (UL), and under the auspices of the University of Rwanda and Rwanda Biomedical Centre. The project involves two PhD students, Jean Paul Uwizihiwe (enrolled at AU) and Charilaos Lygidakis (enrolled at UL), and is kindly sponsored by the Karen Elise Jensens Foundation, alongside AU and UL. In this report we wished to narrate what we had been working on for the past two years: from the first steps to understanding better the context and mapping the territory; from obtaining the necessary authorisations to developing the app and translating the questionnaires.

The Higher Education Language Skills Certification (French CLES) is a scenario-based language certification accredited by the French Ministry for Higher Education which is linked to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). It allows students to obtain a certification to testify their skills in 11 different languages and at three different levels: CLES 1, 2, 3 corresponding respectively to levels B1, B2, C1 of the CEFR. CLES enables five language skills to be assessed: listening, reading, writing, speaking and interacting. As such it belongs to the fourth generation in the history of testing: the action-oriented integrative sociolinguistic approach (cf Spolsky 1981, Reichert, 2011, Tardieu 2013). This presentation will deal with a submitted Franco-Luxembourgian project aiming at framing the conditions for a valid, reliable and fair CLES. The project will notably involve improving the linking to the CEFR levels: The Dutch CEF Grid as well as the CEF-ESTIM grid and the expertise in standard setting gained through the Socrates EBAFLS project will be used. Key reference materials such as the SurveyLang (Cito, 2011) reports and The Manual (A.L.T.E/Council of Europe, 2011) will be solicited. The expertise of the CLES teams of testers shall be improved through the use of new criterial grids and specific tester trainings. A German and English C-Test (Raatz & Klein-Braley, 1982, Reichert, 2011), as well as additional comprehensive language tests will be used to verify the criterion validity of the CLES. Both reliability and validity of the CLES will be verified before and after the adaptation of the procedures linking the CLES to the CEFR. This will eventually allow the documentation of adequate approaches and methods helping to enhance the validity of language tests such as the CLES with regard to the CEFR. [less ▲]

Depuis que la Chambre des Députés a introduit les pétitions électroniques en avril 2013, il ne se passe pas une semaine sans que les médias traditionnels et sociaux n’y fassent référence. Généralement ils le font pour informer le public du dépôt de nouvelles pétitions ou pour présenter et débattre des pétitions qui ont reçu un grand nombre de signatures. Un récent sondage réalisé en 2018 révèle par ailleurs qu’en moyenne 64 % des citoyens luxembourgeois disent avoir signé au moins une e-pétition sur le site de la Chambre des Députés1. Il est par conséquent assez logique que les e-pétitions soient perçues comme le principal instrument de démocratie participative du pays et qu’elles monopolisent régulièrement le débat public pendant des semaines en mettant à l’agenda des questions souvent controversées. Prenons l’exemple d’une e-pétition qui demandait que la langue luxembourgeoise devienne la principale langue du pays en obtenant un nombre très élevé de signatures. Bien que les e-pétitions soient rapidement devenues un instrument participatif incontournable, à la fois enrichissant et perturbateur du système politique luxembourgeois, elles n’ont été que très peu étudiées. L’objectif de cet article est d’offrir un tour d’horizon du fonctionnement et de la recherche autour des e-pétitions au Luxembourg. [less ▲]
