MINDSET (Management Information& Decision Support Epilepsy Tool): Decision-support for the clinical management of epilepsy

Project identifier:
SIP 09-11 and SIP 12-057: Managing Epilepsy Well: Network for Epilepsy Self-Management

Management Information & Decision Support Epilepsy ToolThis two-year project will develop and test a clinic-based computer program to assist patients and their health care providers in communicating about the patient’s epilepsy self-management and to more effectively enhance this behavior. The computer-based program is named MINDSET (Management Information & Decision Support Epilepsy Tool) and it will be mounted on a palm-sized computer that is accessed by the patient and their provider during the regular clinic visit. Based on the patient’s symptoms with epilepsy, their behavior, and their thoughts and attitudes, the program will provide the patient and the provider with information of the patient’s self-management needs, recommendations on important discussion points for the clinic visit, patient management goals, and suggestions for a patient self-management ‘action plan’ subsequent to the clinic visit. The program will be tested to determine that it is a feasible adjunct to the epilepsy care.
