WebEase (Web Epilepsy, Awareness, Support and Education) is the first interactive, on-line self-management program for people with epilepsy shown to be effective in improving self-management skills. WebEase was developed by a team of researchers from Emory University with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and is now available to the general public through the Epilepsy Foundation at www.webease.org. The purpose of this presentation is to provide interested epilepsy health care and social services providers with a brief overview of WebEase. In addition to exploring the benefits of WebEase for people living with epilepsy, the Webinar will review the structure and components of the program, its theoretical principles and its evidence base.
WebEase for Health care and Social Services Providers is part of the MEW Network Webinar Series on Epilepsy Self-Management. For more information about this series, please go to www.sph.emory.edu/ManagingEpilepsyWell/WEBINARS.
