Key Takeaways from webinar on What Doctors Don’t Discuss with You and Why recorded on March 16, 2023.
When living with epilepsy, finding resources is key…
A social worker can help, and the cost is most likely free!
- If you have non-medical questions that cannot be addressed during a medical appointment, ask to speak with a social worker.
- A lot of social workers do not charge for their services unless they provide counseling, in which case they may accept insurance.
- Some needs a social worker can address include: medication discounts, seizure first aid training, counseling, education on how to maintain independence, legal rights, advocacy options, support group options, seizure alert devices, etc.
- If the clinic you attend does not have a social worker, ask your provider for a referral, or contact a local nonprofit such as the Epilepsy Foundation.
