EpiNet Project

EpiNet comprises a secure international patient database. Data can be collected about all people with epilepsy in a systematic manner. The goals are to establish registries, and to run large, simple, pragmatic, randomised controlled trials. Trials will be investigator-initiated and independent. We want to create a culture in which epileptologists will automatically seek to enter patients into registries and/or randomised controlled trials when there is uncertainty regarding the optimal treatment. The database is also designed to provide a useful clinical tool for the clinicians who use it. EpiNet records can be linked with other electronic medical records.
