Epilepsy Impact Scale
Trial ID or NCT#
The investigators are developing a questionnaire that can quickly measure the impact that epilepsy has on a person's life. This questionnaire will be useful in following whether the impact of epilepsy increases, decreases or stays the same over time. The results also may point out areas that would benefit from discussion or attention in visits with your doctor.
