Thanks goes to Kt's Fund for funding and backing work in Cornwall that led to SUDEP Action sharing Neurology team of the Year 2016, for innovation to tackle epilepsy deaths. This British Medical Journal Award backs a positive structured approach to talking about risk, that has changed culture and practice. Support tools are what is needed to bridge the gap between guidelines and practice. Thanks to all our supporters who have been with the charity every step of the way. We need your support more than ever now. Thanks to all our fantastic fundraisers.
Please support our Champion4change Campaign, we are aiming for 100 MPs to sign our Early Day Motion calling for support for Safety tools, and to get as many GPs as possible taking up our free SUDEP and Seizure Safety e-learning produced with RCGP. The course covers issues relating to girls of childbearing age, and the safety tools which support a simple checking of risk for anyone over 16. SUDEP Action presented at a major conference – Partners Against Mortality in Epilepsy in Washington DC from June 23rd-26th.
