WebEase (Web Epilepsy, Awareness, Support and Education) is the first interactive, on-line self-management program for people with epilepsy shown to be effective in improving self-management skills. WebEase was developed by a team of researchers from Emory University with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
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 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 is people living with epilepsy or to the people who support someone living with epilepsy. Self-management programs are recognized as important tools to help people with epilepsy control their seizures, minimize the effects of epilepsy and its treatment, and enhance quality of life.
WebEase is now available to the general public at www.webease.org.
