Epilepsy and Memory Study

June 6, 2022
Epilepsy and Memory Study: Participants needed! For more information, please contact Sahil Patel, Study Coordinator: 416-978-6381, sahil.patel@uhnresearch.ca. A distance-delivery program designed to improve everyday memory function. Learn about the link between epilepsy and memory and strategies to help manage memory problems.

Although memory problems are one of the most common complaints among people with epilepsy, few resources exist to help manage these problems.

Developed by a team of EpLink researchers and epilepsy community members, the STREAM program is a distance-delivery group intervention that provides evidence-based strategies for memory enhancement. 

Over the course of eight, 60-minute sessions delivered once a week, participants will have the chance to share their experiences and learn about management strategies from trained facilitators in a virtual small-group setting. By using a distance-delivery model, this program can be accessed by anyone in Ontario without having to travel.

This study is currently recruiting adults with epilepsy who experience memory problems. If you have been diagnosed with epilepsy, are over the age of 18 and experience memory changes that affect your daily functioning, you may be eligible to participate.
