Epilepsy CurrentsParental Counseling About Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy: Why, When, Where, What, Who, and How?

Overall, studies on sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) counseling emphasize the importance of patient and family education and agree on its content and process. Future research should look into how it affects epilepsy management and the psychosocial well-being of adults and children with epilepsy and their caregivers from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds, as well as SUDEP rates. In this regard, the impact of newer technologies and health-care models should be assessed. Although the scientific community is hard at work elucidating the pathophysiology and prevention strategy of this dreaded occurrence, such longitudinal studies have the potential to inform both practice and policy, as well as act as a catalyst in bridging the currently existing gap between family-desired and clinician-provided counseling.
