Patient Associations Neurology
Experts have been studying epilepsy for years but, despite this, there is still a high lack of information, persisting in society false myths about this disease. However, eradicating old myths costs much more than teaching the right way to treat a person with epilepsy during a crisis.
The lack of information and knowledge about epilepsy has a daily repercussion on each person suffering from this disease. The importance of patient and family associations in the area of awareness and knowledge of the disease is crucial to progress in eradicating the social stigma of this pathology.
