About Epilepsy Self Monitor – EpSMon
EpSMon can be used as a self-management tool by providing risk assessments to patients and encouraging early intervention for people with rising risk. EpSMon informs of changes to risk factors by patients monitoring their seizures and well-being, and encourages seeking medical help if required. EpSMon is a digital version of a SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) and Seizure Safety Checklist, developed and available for professionals who register with SUDEP Action for annual updates from a UK-wide development group of experts.
