Abstract

Twenty-five people with epilepsy were interviewed to identify their perception of self-management. The interviews revealed that there were three domains of self-management: (a) treatment management, (b) seizure management, and (c) life management. Management issues arose in daily life, at work, and in relationships and were related to the seizure event, seizure consequences, and medication. Participants described how they managed situations created by their disorder. Self-management techniques included management of employment and social situations, seizures, seizure consequences, and medication. The study revealed that epilepsy affects all areas of life and provides a unique look at the concept of self-management.
