Evidence and Beyond
Program Length: 2 hrs 3 min
An evidence-based approach will be used to extend the comprehension of the scientific and clinical underpinnings of status epilepticus (SE) for the practitioner. Findings related to neuronal protection and damage, along with results from clinical trials, establish the basis for developing SE treatment guidelines and will be emphasized. A framework will be presented to interpret SE guidelines and develop appropriate applications in clinical practice for adult and pediatric patients. The presenters will also address some of the complexities of developing SE treatment guidelines and determining how they are related to the duration of a seizure.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Comprehend the evidence-based foundations for neuronal damage and protection
- Apply this knowledge and critically interpret SE clinical trial results
- Synthesize the concepts of neuronal damage/protection and clinical trial results to
develop appropriate treatment guidelines for SE in the clinical setting
- Effectively implement treatment guidelines for SE in pediatric and adult patients
- Derive and implement patient education strategies from the treatment guidelines for SE.
All clinical practitioners treating patients with epilepsy.
