Shared Audits
The group has developed an Adult First Seizure Audit that is available for download by clinicians involved in managing epilepsy. This audit is intended to measure performance of adult out-patient services in assessing the patient who is a new referral to secondary care services with a presumed seizure or seizure disorder. The audit has been developed to be easily downloaded and used by any secondary care provider. Please read this important information before using this audit.

NATIONAL SENTINEL CLINICAL AUDIT OF EPILEPSY-RELATED DEATH (2002)

This landmark audit examined standards of care and service infrastructure provided to UK patients who suffered an epilepsy related death over a one year period, and has acted as a springboard for the ongoing work of epilepsy bereaved.
Work is underway to create a national registry that will allow the prospective audit (and research) of care in cases of epilepsy related deaths in future.
