Introducing WebEase to people with epilepsy

Presented in partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation and the CDC Epilepsy Program on November 13, 2012. Special thanks to the American Epilepsy Society (AES) the Epilepsy Therapy Project and to UCB/Epilepsy Advocate for publicizing this event.

Summary: WebEase (Web Epilepsy, Awareness, Support and Education) is an interactive, online self-management program for people with epilepsy. WebEase is different from other Epilepsy websites because it does not tell you what you should do.  Rather, it guides you to think about what is important to you in managing your epilepsy through taking medications, managing stress and getting a good night’s sleep. WebEase is for anyone living with epilepsy and who is interested in improving their self-management skills regardless of where they are in life, or how long they have lived with epilepsy.

The goal of this Webinar is to give an overview of WebEase to people living with epilepsy or to the people who support someone living with epilepsy. We will review the benefits of the self-management and of WebEase. The Webinar will include a tour of WebEase main features, including the learning modules on medication, stress and sleep, and the personal epilepsy diary (MyLog).

Summary: WebEase (Web Epilepsy, Awareness, Support and Education) is the first interactive, online self-management program for people with epilepsy shown to be effective in improving self-management skills.
