The EU-funded European Study on the Burden and Care of Epilepsy project has worked since 2015 to address important questions on the present state of epilepsy care in Europe and the future of care for persons with epilepsy in Europe. For the first time, the ESBACE project will present provisional results at this session during the 13th ECE. This session should be of interest to professionals in epilepsy care, health care providers as well as people with epilepsy and their families. See the Special Sessions page of the Programme section for further details.
