Webinar: Rescue Medication Delivery Methods and Future Therapies
10:30 am - 11:30 am CDT
Seizures can be both unpredictable and unrelenting. When a seizure becomes an emergency, rescue medications provide immediate relief and help prevent the need for emergency care. While existing therapies do stop these epilepsy emergencies in many patients, some are still searching for an option that works for them.
In the second part of this two-part webinar series on September 10, you will gain insight from Dr. Nathan Fountain of the University of Virginia on how different rescue medications can be administered, promising research, and what rescue therapies are currently in the pipeline. His presentation will include a look at the rescue medication pipeline and the new delivery methods which may become available to patients.
During our first webinar on August 13, Dr. Kamil Detyniecki of the University of Miami will provide an overview of the different types of seizure emergencies, while also discussing the currently available rescue medications.
During a live Q&A at the end of each webinar, these leading experts will answer your questions such as:
- What makes different delivery methods more or less effective for some patients?
- Are rescue medications only for individuals who experience seizure clusters?
- What are the potential risks associated with using rescue medications?
The second webinar will be presented by Dr. Nathan Fountain, Professor of Neurology and the Director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at the University of Virginia. The first webinar will feature Dr. Kamil Detyniecki, Assistant Professor of the Clinical Neurology Epilepsy Division, at the University of Miami.
