Abstract

In this chapter, research related to quality of life in children with epilepsy and their psychosocial needs is reviewed. Nursing and nonnursing research reports and descriptions of instruments developed between January 1994 and February 1999 are included. Most research reports described quality-of-life problems, especially psychological functioning in school-age children. Less attention was devoted to psychosocial needs. Major gaps included intervention studies and research on infants and young children. Conclusions include recommendations for future research.
