SIP 14-007  Managing Epilepsy Well (MEW) Collaborating Center

The Management Information Decision Support Epilepsy Tool (MINDSET) was developed as a tablet-based clinical aid for both the patient and health-care provider (HCP) to improve communication about self-management.  MINDSET uses data entered by the patient during a clinic visit to create a patient profile and an action plan tailored to the patient's self- management needs.  The action plan includes recommended behavioral goals and strategies developed jointly by the patient and provider during the clinic visit. The goal of this project is to develop and test a Spanish version of MINDSET.  Both the English and Spanish version of MINDSET will be tested with patients attending four clinic sites on the Arizona and Texas border.
