Barrier Assessment and Implementation of a Tailored Educational Intervention for Families of Children with Epilepsy in a Medically Underserved Population

Brief description of study

We aim to identify the socioeconomic/cultural disparities and patient perspective barriers in a medically underserved population (Bellevue Hospital). This will be followed by an implementation period with the design of an individualized educational intervention for families of patients with pediatric epilepsy. This pilot study will incorporate the use of questionnaires, data analysis, educational intervention development, social media, and videography to both assess the inequality experienced by this population and improve their health outcomes. Studies have evaluated the patient and family perspectives on epilepsy surgery, but there has been no study to our knowledge that incorporates an educational component built from these results.
