New RightCare epilepsy toolkit for local health systems

In England, people living with epilepsy and the systems supporting them are experiencing challenges including high misdiagnosis rates; inaccurate epilepsy population estimates; increasing mortality attributed to epilepsy and a lack of optimal management strategies that could reduce unnecessary emergency care for people living with epilepsy.

Developed in partnership with Epilepsy Action, SUDEP Action and Young Epilepsy, this toolkit provides opportunity to assess and benchmark current systems to find opportunities for improvement.

The epilepsy toolkit will support systems to understand the priorities in epilepsy care and key actions to take. It provides a focus for improving local health systems, tailored to the needs of the epilepsy population with expert practical advice and guidance on how to address these epilepsy-related challenges.
