The recommendations found in the guidelines series were developed to improve the quality and consistency of epilepsy care, and to ensure that all Ontarians with epilepsy have timely access to treatment, including surgical care. If you have epilepsy, the information in these guidelines can help you, your caregivers and your healthcare providers to make informed decisions about your treatment.
