This program will be of interest to residents, physicians, and nurse practitioners who treat epilepsy patients and will comprised of didactic lectures and question and answer sessions.
This is a full day update exploring the latest developments in evaluation and treatment of epilepsy. Both adult and pediatric populations will be highlighted. There are exciting developments in drug therapy for all patients but particularly those who are more refractory. For patients not responding to drug therapy, less invasive surgical evaluation and treatments make these suitable for a larger number of patients. There are now three FDA approved devices for epilepsy, all bringing our patients closer to full control and a full life with epilepsy.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be better able to:
• Describe the properties and best use of newer AEDs.
• Practice appropriate referrals for epilepsy surgery.
• Understand newer and less invasive workup and surgery for refractory epilepsy patients
• Properly evaluate refractory patients for possible treatment with neuromodulatory device therapy.
