The National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) has produced standards for the accreditation of epilepsy centers. In particular, “The Guidelines for Essential Services, Personnel, and Facilities in Specialized Epilepsy Centers in the United States – Revised 2010 Guidelines” are the basis for the criteria that NAEC uses to accredit level 3 and 4 epilepsy centers. These are now more than 10 years old and are due for revision. The NAEC is forming a Guideline Panel to develop the next set of standards. This webinar reviews the standards and the move to evidence-informed guidelines that should be of interest to any center that is considering accreditation or expanding epilepsy services.
