Let’s Talk About Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP):
A Conversation with Parents and Doctors

Webinar  |  November 17, 2017  |  12-1:15 pm (ET)  |  Register
Parents of children living with epilepsy should be informed of all risks of their child’s neurologic condition – including Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) – the leading epilepsy-related cause of death. Despite the serious risk of SUDEP, doctors are often hesitant to discuss it. However, studies show that families:

  • Want their doctors to tell them about the risk of SUDEP; and
  • Believe that learning about SUDEP could make a difference in how they approach seizure control.
Join experts from the child neurology community for an interactive 75-minute webinar on SUDEP with live polling and Q&A. 

What will we talk about?

  • Introduction to SUDEP, including the known causes, risk for children, how to reduce risk
  • Current SUDEP research initiatives
  • Strategies families can use when talking with medical providers about a child’s health risks
  • Parent perspective of how to best use information about the risk for SUDEP when managing a child’s medical care
  • Resources for families as they address the risk for SUDEP

Who will talk about it?
