Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 23-item questionnaire was constructed to assess awareness of basic facts about epilepsy. Close family members of the epilepsy sufferer achieved significantly higher scores on the questionnaire than individuals from families without experience of the condition. The questionnaire may be useful in the identification of family members of the epilepsy sufferer whose knowledge of the condition is low and who may require appropriate counselling.
