Seizure Disorders: Classification, Treatment, and Neurobehavioral Aspects

March 13 @ 12:30 pm 5:15 pm

This training has been designed to provide participants with an overview of seizures and epileptic syndromes, their treatment and associated neurobehavioral manifestations. The classification system issued in 2017 by the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE), the world’s primary scientific organization devoted to the study of epilepsy, will be reviewed.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this training, program participants will be able to:

1. Describe the various types of seizures, including focal (motor and non-motor) and generalized (e.g., absence, tonic-clonic), as well as epileptic syndromes (e.g. Lennox-Gastaut).

2. List the commonly prescribed anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs), as well as possible side effects and interactions with other medications (e.g., contraceptives).

3. Identify the ictal, peri-ictal, and interictal neurobehavioral manifestations associated with seizure disorders.

4. Describe the neurological and neurocognitive sequelae related to seizure disorders (e.g., head trauma, anoxia secondary to status epilepticus).
