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.
