The next Webinar scheduled by PAME - Partners Against Mortality in Epilepsy, will be on January 15, 2014.
One of the three presenters is Dr. Lawrence Hirsch, Professor of Neurology;Chief, Division of Epilepsy and EEG;Co-Director, Yale Comprehensive Epilepsy Center Yale University.
Ending sudden unexplained death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a shared responsibility. And you can help! Any successful effort will require doctors, people with epilepsy, nurses, researchers, coroners and those bereaved by the loss of someone to SUDEP to work together. It will require collaboration across many different organizations over many years.
During this webinar we will begin with a look at what research is telling us about the possible causes as well as future prevention methods and cures for SUDEP. Some of the questions that researchers are seeking to understand and answer include:• Does slowed brain function after a seizure play a role in SUDEP?
