Provincial Guidelines for Epilepsy

Critical Care Services Ontario (CCSO) in collaboration with Provincial Neurosurgery Ontario, and the Epilepsy Implementation Taskforce (EITF), have released a new resource for primary care physicians, neurologists, and any health care provider engaged in the care of patients with epilepsy. This set of guidelines aims to help with the diagnosis, treatment, and referral practices from the moment of a patient’s first seizure. For more information about the documents below, see the memorandum from CCSO.
