  • UCB Supports Indiana University Research on Epilepsy Emergency Room Educational Materials

    The emergency department is a common point of medical intervention for epilepsy patients. We recognize there are more than one million visits to the emergency department every year for epilepsy-related seizures . These visits are not only a significant cost to the healthcare system, but also often leave patients with questions and unease related to their epilepsy diagnosis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has also recognized epilepsy as a public health challenge where patients need more skills and resources to manage their condition effectively. That’s why UCB Inc. is working with Indiana University School of Nursing to address existing gaps in care when it comes to emergency department visits and epilepsy care.
