Encouraging Self-Management

Help your patients by educating them about the importance of epilepsy self-management and connecting them to programs that can help. Patients are more likely to participate in a self-management program with a recommendation and support from a health care professional.

Diagnosing and Managing Neurocysticercosis

Take a free, online course on neurocysticercosis, which is caused by an infection from a tapeworm found in pigs and can cause the brain to have symptoms such as epilepsy. The infection is treatable with antiparasite medication and is a leading preventable cause of epilepsy worldwide. Lessons include epidemiology, presentation, diagnosis, evaluation techniques, and how to manage a patient’s symptoms. Continuing education credits are available.
