People with epilepsy should have a comprehensive support plan agreed with their healthcare professionals, which should include both medical and lifestyle issues. Service users should also have an annual review of their epilepsy.
Having a support plan that details a service user’s epilepsy, as well as the treatment and overall management is an absolute necessity. Not only that, but a truly effective support plan will cover individual issues and other details that are important to the service user, including education, work and leisure.
Ensuring medication and treatments are effective is a primary concern when managing epilepsy. A support plan should thoroughly detail the medication that a person with epilepsy is prescribed, as well as any side effects or administration issues. It provides a convenient way to strategise on potential changes and is an essential document should a healthcare professional need to familiarise themselves with a service user.
At National Epilepsy Care, we work alongside our service users to create thorough support plans that are frequently updated and detail all important aspects of their epilepsy. We help our service users to make informed decisions on the management of their epilepsy. We fully welcome the involvement of family members, other members of the care team and others who are involved in the care of an individual.
