Treating and living with epilepsy, Brussels 12 October 2011 : workshop : proceedings

The underlying causes of epilepsy are still largely a mystery: it is not yet clearly understood why some people are born with a disposition towards epilepsy and others not. An estimated 15 million people in Europe today will develop epilepsy at some point in their life. At present, up to 40% of Europeans with epilepsy do not receive adequate treatment. The Workshop on Treating and Living with Epilepsy was held by the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI), and it followed the European Parliament’s written declaration on epilepsy (15 September 2011). The workshop reviewed the medical, psychological and social aspects of epilepsy as well as the treatments for the disease. The workshop was chaired by Glenis WILLMOTT, MEP
