SIP 14-007 : Managing Epilepsy Well (MEW) Collaborating Center
In partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation, PAUSE (Personalized Internet Assisted Underserved Self-Management of Epilepsy) will provide patients with refractory epilepsy free access to a computer tablet and Internet service to test the combination of epilepsy educational information based on Epilepsy.com content with real-time (web-based) video conferencing with a health educator. Based on patient needs identified during a clinic visit, a healthcare provider will assign personalized educational content for the patient and/or a caregiver that can be reviewed at a customizable pace and with guidance from a trained nurse or health educator via web conferencing.
