EAN 2023 | Multidisciplinary care for improving treatment of rare epilepsies

Simona Balestrini, MD, PhD, from University College London, UK, discusses the role of multidisciplinary care in managing rare epilepsies. Dr Balestrini highlights the significance of using a collaborative approach, leveraging expertise from various specialties to optimize patient care. Given the unpredictable nature of rare epilepsies, a multi-level approach involving neurology, cardiology, gastroenterology, and other important fields becomes crucial to manage and prevent unforeseen complications. Dr Balestrini discusses how it is important to consider transitions in care as the patient progresses through different stages of life, as different medical interventions may be required. Moreover, Dr Balestrini highlights the importance of considering patient-specific factors beyond genetics in personalized medicine, advocating for a holistic approach considering their lifestyle and personal environment, in order to tailor treatment strategies to their unique needs. Recorded at the 9th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) 2023 held in Budapest, Hungary.
