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

PACES (Program for Active Consumer Engagement in Self-Management) was developed to improve self-management and related health outcomes in adults with epilepsy.  The goals of this study are to adapt PACES for telephone delivery; support both in-person and telephone group delivery of the program; and evaluate the effectiveness of PACES in both rural and veteran subpopulations in the Pacific Northwest.   PACES will include Epilepsy Foundation HOPE Mentorswho will provide peer-support to reinforce participant goal achievement.  If effective, the PACES team will collaborate with the University of Washington Training Xchange staff in order to build a sustainable model of training recruitment, training options, and national dissemination (in-person and e-learning).
