COVID-19 and Epilepsy

The COVID19 pandemic is affecting all of us, regardless of where we are and what we do. Professionals in epilepsy, like most health professionals, are under substantial strain on many fronts. As clinicians, we are called to deliver care under difficult circumstances and often with limited or insufficient resources. As researchers, our clinical and basic research facilities are on lock down and programs are halted.

As the pandemic progresses, we learn more about the disease and the possible effect on our patients. Our model of care with regard to how we treat our patients has had to change. Here we provide up to date information and resources to help us do this.
