The aim of the guide is to share information about what epilepsy is, and what it is not. The guide will allow for easy knowledge transfer on facts about epilepsy. It is envisaged that this will also help adults with epilepsy to improve their health-seeking behaviour, contribute to an improved quality of life and in turn contribute towards a reduction of stigma based on misinformation and ignorance. The contents will explain what epilepsy is and what it is not (dispelling myths), medication and treatment options, epilepsy first aid, how to reduce seizure frequency, and information for families.
An artist has been contracted to provide the graphics for the guide, and will create appropriate images following advice from the Epipicto project group.
As soon as the guide has been finalised it will be available on the Downloads page.
