In partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation, Eisai sponsored a national survey among those living with epilepsy and their caregivers to identify and help address the unmet needs of the epilepsy community.
There is a wide gap between the needs of people living with or affected by epilepsy and the resources currently available to them.
Despite its prevalence, epilepsy is widely misunderstood.
In line with our human health care (hhc) mission and commitment to advancing epilepsy care for patients and caregivers, Eisai plans to use these findings to help guide the development of future programs that will help better serve the needs of this community.
The Methodology: The national survey was conducted by Wakefield Research among 250 epilepsy patients and 250 caregivers ages 18+ between March 28th and April 14th, 2014, using an e-mail invitation and online survey. Among the respondents, 54% were female and 46% were male, with 43% under the age of 40 and 57% age 40 or older. The mean age of people with epilepsy or persons cared for was 36 years.
