A new practical website, app and booklet, called How2tell that will support people with epilepsy in everyday social, personal and work situations received national coverage this week.

How2tell tools feature the 'voices of real people with epilepsy' using videos and quotes to present their voices. It is hoped that How2tell will support people newly diagnosed with epilepsy, and healthcare professionals and community care staff who support them as they adapt to living with epilepsy.

Dr Naomi Elliott, Associate Professor of Nursing at Trinity and lead researcher on the How2tell project featured in an Irish Times feature and a Newsalk interview with Ivan Yates discussing the information resource.

Epilepsy Ireland is delighted to have funded Dr Naomi Elliott and colleagues at Trinity College Dublin in their work to develop this extremely important and practice resource.
