CURE Webinar: Surgical Treatment Options as Tools to Reduce the Risk of Mortality in Epilepsy

Join our partners at CURE Epilepsy for a Webinar on Surgical Treatment Options as Tools to Reduce the Risk of Mortality in Epilepsy.

Thursday, October 26, 2023
1-2 pm CST

The pediatric epilepsy journey can be challenging and scary. Surgery has been less utilized but research has shown that it can be an effective treatment option, especially for those living with drug-resistant epilepsy. Surgery can reduce seizure frequency and lessen the risk of seizure-related death.

While surgery might not be an option for every patient, it is important to advocate for timely, comprehensive surgical evaluation for all people struggling with epilepsy and reduce the known disparities in access to surgical treatment options.

In this webinar, we will discuss how surgery is one of the tools available to treat epilepsy and why having a surgical evaluation is important. Attendees will also learn about how different treatment approaches can improve survival and contribute to improved healthcare outcomes.

This webinar is conducted in partnership with Partners Against Mortality in Epilepsy (PAME). The mission of PAME is to convene, educate and inspire all stakeholders – from the bereaved to those living with epilepsy, to health care professionals, advocates, clinical and basic scientists, and death investigators – to promote understanding and drive prevention of epilepsy-related mortality.
