Introducing the Paediatric Epilepsy Network NSW (PENNSW)

The Paediatric Epilepsy Network NSW (PENNSW) is a paediatric epilepsy website developed through consultation with key medical personnel and families affected with epilepsy. The website is designed to improve the standard of care and quality of life of children and adolescents living with epilepsy.

For clinicians, the website provides key information on approach to diagnosis, epilepsy syndromes, medications, safety, issues of driving and pregnancy, and management of first seizure and epilepsy. It provides standardised documents for event recording, drug planning and emergency seizure management for schools, day care centres and respite centres.

PENNSW recognises that children and adolescents with epilepsy are largely managed jointly by general paediatricians and GPs in the community and rural setting. The website provides high quality evidence-based resources and education focusing on standardised care accessible to all those caring for children and adolescents with epilepsy. The website brings together into one site clinically relevant and practical information for the management of paediatric epilepsy.
