Description: Faculty will comprehensively address specific aspects of epilepsy care across the age span.

Women's health issues in seizure care, especially during pregnancy, will inform about the risks and benefits of medical and surgical treatments. Birth control options for patients with epilepsy will be discussed. The elderly are another distinct patient population. The distinction between epileptic and non-epileptic events is particularly important in this age group. Declining cognition and the effects of anti-epileptic medications and their interactions will be discussed. Illustrative cases will complement the course. This program complements C29: Clinical Epilepsy I: Basics and C58: Clinical Epilepsy III: Advanced (Status, Beyond AED, Video EEG), but covers independent topics.
