The IOM will recommend priorities in these areas in order to better understand the public health impact of the epilepsies and to meet the needs of people with epilepsy and their caregivers. The IOM is undertaking a new study that will consider the public health dimensions of the epilepsies in the United States—including health care and human services, health literacy, and education. Specifically, the IOM will focus on the following questions: For more information.

There are more than 40 types of epilepsy—referred to collectively as the epilepsies—that cause recurrent seizures and that can be responsible for brain damage; neurological, cognitive, or psychiatric impairment; and death. Epilepsy is one of the most common neurologic conditions in the United States, affecting at least 1 in 100 adults and 1 in 20 children. However, current approaches do not fully take into account either the broad range of epilepsy disorders and their comorbidities or their consequences for health and quality of life. Advances in research are improving our understanding of the scope of epilepsy and its public health impact.
