Observation and Monitoring

Accurate observation through witness accounts and the keeping of a seizure observation diary can be most useful in elucidating features and patterns that may not be apparent to the clinician otherwise. Similarly the use of video (with consent) is of particular benefit as the person may be unlikely to have an episode at the exact time they attend clinic. Some intensive teaching methods involve detailed observation and recording and this can provide excellent data for the clinician.
