One of the ways that EpLink is helping to improve clinical epilepsy care is through our involvement with the Epilepsy Implementation Task Force (EITF). This task force, created in 2013 with the support of Critical Care Services Ontario, has the primary goal of creating provincial guidelines to standardize clinical epilepsy care across Ontario. In addition to representatives from Critical Care Services Ontario, the Ontario Brain Institute, hospital and academic institutions and the epilepsy community, EpLink researchers have been key members of the EITF, contributing their expertise to the creation of 7 evidence-based provincial epilepsy guidelines.
In collaboration with the EITF, EpLink has launched a campaign to help everyone in the epilepsy community learn about the key recommendations from the guidelines, whether they are people with epilepsy, caregivers or physicians. Visit OntarioEpilepsyGuidelines.ca to find detailed summaries, videos, and more information about how these guidelines can help improve epilepsy care in Ontario.
