The purpose of this study is to develop an online self-management program for youth and young adults (ages 13-19) with epilepsy that is grounded in behavioral science and youth development theory. The project will include a systematic review of the literature related to pediatric self-management; a series of focus groups with youth with epilepsy, parents/guardians of youth with epilepsy, and key informants; the creation of an advisory group comprised of youth with epilepsy to assist with program design and content; and intervention evaluation.
