12th Annual Yale Epilepsy Symposium
Epilepsy and seizures effect almost 3 million Americans of all ages. Tremendous advances have been made in the treatment of epilepsy over the past decade with drug therapy, surgery, neurostimulation, and ketogenic diets. The wide range of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) remains the cornerstone of treatment. Even with the plethora of epilepsy therapies now available, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that at least 45% of people with epilepsy continue to experience seizures because there’s a serious gap that exists between established recommendations and the actual care patients receive.
This one-day symposium will bring participants up to date on new advancements in the field of epilepsy and increase their awareness of new therapies available for their patients.Case studies will be presented with opportunities for questions at the end of each topic.
