Join us for our first Research Roundtable webinar of 2022 when we’ll be hearing from research experts and people with lived experience on the topic of epilepsy in pregnancy.

Over the past decade, ERUK-funded research has contributed to changes in prescribing policy and clinical practice for epilepsy, reducing risk for countless babies of women with epilepsy. This month we’ve been looking at epilepsy during pregnancy, the journey to recognising the risks associated with antiepileptic drugs such as sodium valproate, and how research is making pregnancy safer for both mother and baby.

The session is open to everyone and will be held at 11am on Monday 31st JanuarySo, whether you are affected by epilepsy, researching epilepsy or just interested to learn more, we hope you can join us.

Dr Rebecca Bromley, whose ERUK-funded research led to key changes in policy and clinical practice relating to prescription medication for women with epilepsy. Dr Bromley will discuss how her work provided much-needed evidence and how patient campaigning and research brought about vital change.
