||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.
