Each NeuroPI module is prepared by distinguished faculty who are acknowledged leaders in their respective fields. Each module is composed of a set of multiple-choice items with preferred response, instructions on how to collect cases to assess one's practice, and resources for creating and implementing an effective improvement plan. Participants are able to compare their performance pre- and post intervention to assess what changes have occurred in their practice.

Learning Objectives

Program Objectives:

  1. Recognize the need to document seizure frequency and discuss change in therapy, if appropriate, in patients diagnosed with epilepsy.
  2. Identify the need to determine etiology of epilepsy, seizure type or epilepsy syndrome in patients diagnosed with epilepsy.
  3. Recognize the need to query about and discuss side effects of anti-seizure therapy with patients diagnosed with epilepsy.
  4. Describe the need for personalized epilepsy safety issues and patient education annually for all patients diagnosed with epilepsy.
  5. Explain the need to screen patients diagnosed with epilepsy for psychiatric or behavioral disorders.
  6. Recognize the need to counsel women of diagnosed with epilepsy of childbearing potential on how epilepsy and its treatment may affect contraception or pregnancy.

Featured Measures

Category 1: Patients with a Diagnosis of Epilepsy

  • Querying for seizure frequency AND discussion of change in therapy.
  • Etiology, Seizure Type, or Epilepsy Syndrome.
  • Querying and Intervention for Side Effects of Anti-seizure Therapy.
  • Personalized Epilepsy Safety Issues and Education Provided.
  • Screening for Psychiatric or Behavioral Health Disorders.
Category 2: Female Patients of Childbearing Potential (12-44 years old) with Diagnosis of Epilepsy
  • Counseling for Women of Childbearing Potential with Epilepsy.
The quality measures listed are for use in NeuroPI only. The measurements in this set do not qualify for the PQRS incentive program and should not be used for accountability or public reporting programs.

Change Intended

As a result of this program, the participant will determine individual practice gaps and address them through a performance improvement plan designed to improve competence, performance, and patient outcomes.

Practice Gap

Epilepsy is a widely recognized neurologic condition, but it is often poorly understood, diagnosed, and treated. The quality measures applied within this program seek to increase patient safety, improve diagnosis, improve treatment, reduce the number of deaths due to epilepsy, and increase the quality of life for those who have epilepsy.

Core Competencies

  • Interpersonal Skills and Communication
  • Medical Knowledge
  • Patient Care
  • Practice-based Learning and Improvement
  • Professionalism
