Epilepsy is a frightening and much misunderstood condition, which affects around 25000 people in the UK alone. One person in 20 will have a seizure at some point in their life but only 1 in 200 have epilepsy, and so it is important that practitioners have access to guidance on issues such as diagnosis and specialist referral. In the popular Q and A format of the Your Questions Answered series, this book provides succinct, expert information on epilepsy, particularly for the primary care practitioner. It also addresses many questions asked about epilepsy by other physicians, practice and community nurses, medical students and trainees, and indeed patients. With an emphasis on evidence-based, up-to-date knowledge, the authors discus all aspects of this serious condition, including diagnosis, referral and management within the care team.
