The New Way to Describe Your Seizure Type
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST
Managing epilepsy can be a challenge, but understanding the most up-to-date medical terms can help.
Learn the International League Against Epilepsy’s (ILAE) new ways to organize and describe seizures and epilepsy types. Becoming familiar with this new language can enable you and your doctor to better communicate about your treatment options, triggers to avoid, and what to expect in the future.
The webinar is presented by Dr. Robert S. Fisher, who led the task force responsible for the ILAE’s new classification system.
During a live Q&A session with Dr. Fisher, you can ask questions such as:
- How can I tell what type of seizures I have?
- Why don’t we use the terms “grand mal” and “petit mal” seizures anymore?
- How could these new classifications impact my child’s treatment?
