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.
