Adnan Heric-Mansrud from MS-Senteret Hakadal, Norway

participated in the RIMS Fellowship exchange programme. He visited the MS Hospital in Haslev and Ry, Denmark from April 30 to May 1 in 2018 with Anders Guldhammer Skjerbaek as host. Below you can find some feedback from Adnan:

Positive aspects during the stay at the centre:

  • We made clear goals for the visit to Denmark. I travelled together with 2 other colleagues and leaders from my centre in Norway (not covered by fellowship). We spent the first two days at the MS rehabilitation hospital in Haslev. Then I travelled with my host, Anders Guldhammer Skjerbaek, to the MS rehabilitation hospital in Ry. Many co-workers were engaged in providing us all the information we asked for, and our hosts were extremely well prepared. We were interested in the organisation of the rehabilitation in Denmark, which is to some extent similar to Norwegian conditions. We were also interested in the rehabilitation process with goals and measures of effect.

Further, we discussed specific topics within rehabilitation of PwMS. Those are fall-prevention, spasticity and exercise groups and the way they are executed in the MS hospitals in Denmark.

Negative aspects during the stay at the centre:

  • If anything, it would be limited amount of time. Visiting another MS centre is truly inspiring and makes me evaluate my own practice. I feel that I could have gained more if the visit was longer. I also see that it can be challenging to enter daily routine of other centres because PT’s who are at work there also have to take care of their patients and daily routines.

Any other comments on the visit?

  • My colleagues and I acknowledge the amount of work for preparation and invested time of the receiving centre, and we are truly thankful. The hosts’ and our preparations made our trip complete success.
