Seizures

Hospitalists frequently find themselves as the frontline providers of neurological care and involved in the evaluation and management of patients with seizures and epilepsy. In some cases, the seizure is a symptom of another condition or a side effect of medication; in other cases, the seizure is actually epilepsy.

A working knowledge of seizure management and the breadth of issues facing these patients and their providers is critical. The Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) has gathered an expert panel – led by SHM member David Likosky, MD, SFHM – to provide our members with information and tools to help elevate the standard of care for these patients. Dr. Likosky is joined by leading hospitalists, neurohospitalists and an epileptologist.
