The MEW Network’s guiding principles for research  follow the “Living Well with Epilepsy II” 2003 conference recommendations and the CDC Epilepsy Program priority areas:

  • Enhance the behavioral and social science research of people living with epilepsy and self-management of epilepsy.
  • Facilitate the development and testing of self-management models that incorporate critical components for epilepsy.
  • Ensure that programs recognize the spectrum of epilepsy and tailor content appropriately to people with well-controlled, refractory, and new-onset seizures.
  • Promote self-management and self-determination principles and programs in the care and services for people with epilepsy.
