Abstract

One of the most important recommendations made in this book, is that patients and parents should learn as much as possible about their specific type of epilepsy, appropriate management, safety and quality of life. This is even more important today in a patient-physician shared-decision making environment. Recently, there has been an explosive growth of the Internet and Web as tools for seeking and communicating health and medical information about epilepsy. This chapter provides information about the best websites and other resources for people with epilepsy.
