Caring for Children and Youth with Epilepsy: What Primary Care Providers Need to Know Webinar Series

Many primary care providers (PCPs) have reported that they feel ill-equipped to diagnose and manage seizures and comorbidities in their practice. Therefore, the National Coordinating Center for Epilepsy provides a multi-faceted approach to build the capacity of pediatric health care professionals and create sustainable practice change to ultimately improve the quality of care for CYE. Leveraging the national reach and breadth of expertise of the CYE Stakeholder Forum, the Center provides an in-depth review of everything the primary care provider would need to know about managing a child or youth in their practice with seizures and comorbidities in the 10-part webinar series.
