Incorporating Multidimensional Psychosocial Interventions Improves the Well-being of Individuals With Epilepsy


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to incorporate multidimensional self-management programs into the routine care of epilepsy patients. Consenting patients will enroll in one of four interventions that help improve medication adherence, increase seizure awareness and documentation, improve memory and deal with stress and depression.

Detailed Study Description

Though tremendous advances have been made in the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with epilepsy, much remains to be done when it comes to improving their psychosocial well-being. Many individuals with epilepsy have difficulty adhering to treatment, documenting their seizure types, coping with memory difficulties, dealing with stress, and suffer from depression. These factors limit the quality of life of epilepsy patients and prevent them from realizing their full potential.

Patients will enroll in one of four interventions that help improve medication adherence, increase seizure awareness and documentation, improve memory and deal with stress and depression. Patient assessments will be conducted before and after intervention to gauge the efficacy of the programs.

The specific aims of this study are to assess the feasibility and patient acceptability of incorporating multidimensional self-management and psychosocial interventions into routine epileptic care, as well as, determine whether these incorporations improve self-management, quality-of-life, and other measures of well-being.
