A new study has found that a multi-component self-management intervention (MCI) for adults with epilepsy may be an important tool to increase efficiency in epilepsy care.
In the randomized study of 102 patients with epilepsy, the MCI did not significantly improve self-efficacy (confidence to manage medications and seizures), medication adherence, or quality of life when compared with usual care. Cost-effectiveness estimates for MCI however appeared promising.
