WebEase

WebEase (Web Epilepsy, Awareness, Support and Education) is an interactive, on-line self-management program for people with epilepsy. The goal of WebEase is to support and foster the management of epilepsy by people with epilepsy. WebEase was developed by a team of Emory University researchers and physicians who treat patients with epilepsy.

How does it work?

WebEase is different from other Epilepsy websites because it does not tell you what you should do.  Rather, it guides you to think about what is important to you in managing your epilepsy through taking medications, managing stress and getting a good night’s sleep. WebEase encourages you to make decisions that are consistent with your own goals:

Who should use WebEase?

WebEase is for anyone living with epilepsy and who is interested in improving their self-management skills regardless of where they are in life, or how long they have lived with epilepsy. WebEase will be particularly helpful for those who have been recently diagnosed with epilepsy, or for those who are struggling with managing their medication taking, reducing their stress levels and improving their sleep.

Because WebEase adapts to your needs, each WebEase module can be taken mutilple times and support you in your personal journey to improve  your epilepsy self-management at times when you need it most.
