Developing joint quality standards

In cooperation with peer organization SEIN and patient representatives we investigate how to further improve the quality of life of people with complex epilepsy. With the patient as a starting point we have developed quality standards for long-term epilepsy care, allowing us to better organize the care and align it to the needs of the patient and his/her environment.
