Ask the Expert Webinar: Epilepsy Self-management Programs in the Time of COVID-19
April 10, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
It’s always a challenge to guide patients through their own role in managing routines and self-care to minimize the risk of seizures. In times of stress and disruption, self-management becomes more difficult–and more important. Avoiding a visit to the emergency department during this time is critical, both for the safety of the patient and to avoid adding to clinician workload.
This free AES webinar will review evidence in support of patient self-management in epilepsy, describe programs that are currently available virtually (including HOBSCOTCH, UPLIFT, PACES, and SMART), and describe what you can do immediately to implement these programs quickly and efficiently in the clinical practice setting.
Following participation in this webinar, learners will be able to:
- Describe the evidence supporting the benefits of epilepsy self-management programs
- Identify current epilepsy self-management programs
- Identify pathways for patient referral to programs and training opportunities available to epilepsy center team members
