SCORE EEG Educational Platform
The SCORE EEG Educational Platform is an interactive web-based training platform for EEG where students can practice their EEG reporting skills in a safe and realistic environment. They can also compare their EEG findings to the findings of an EEG expert. The SCORE EEG Educational Platform is based on the new global standard for EEG reporting.

100 hour comprehensive, clinically based course, delivered via the internet The largest group of conditions studied will be epileptic seizure disorders/the epilepsies. The overall aim is to provide you with an understanding of the physiological basis of seizure disorders and their epidemiology, along with the detailed clinical knowledge necessary to manage children with seizure disorders to an advanced level.
By the end of the Unit you should:
- be adept at using the International Diagnostic Scheme
- be able to describe the electroclinical features of the different types of epileptic seizures
- be able to identify common and not so common epilepsy syndromes
- have a good knowledge of the various diseases and condition in which epileptic seizures may occur
You will consider the role of EEG, neuroimaging and other investigations in the evaluation of children with seizure disorders. A number of sections deal with treatment issues, including antiepileptic drugs, epilepsy surgery and less conventional / well established treatment modalities, such as vagal nerve stimulation. The effect of epilepsy on the individual, including co-morbidities will also be considered.

Teaching Neurology to Primary Care Physicians in Bolivia
Considering that the number of neurologists in Bolivia is much lower than the rate per capita recommended by the WHO, we believe that it is essential to provide the basic tools for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders to primary care physicians and family doctors. For the above reasons we decided to provide training on basic concepts of methodology and epidemiology and on the most frequent neurological diseases such as stroke, epilepsy, dementia, headache, and central nervous system infections.
The National Epilepsy Education and Awareness Collaborative (NEEAC) Community of Practice
The NEEAC Community of Practice (COP) is a five-year initiative designed to advance the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine's 2012 report on epilepsy to promote health and understanding of the epilepsies. Central to this vision was engaging the epilepsy community and working together towards common goals through a community of practice.
The mission of the NEEAC is to increase public and professional understanding of epilepsy by:
- Mobilizing community partnerships
- Improving care coordination
- Enhancing delivery of community resources and support
