SUDEP and Seizure Safety Checklist


A free evidence based tool supporting Clinicians in discussing risk with
people with epilepsy

It includes risk factors linked to epilepsy mortality, including (but not restricted to)
Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP)


Created by SUDEP Action and Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, the tool is supported by a Development Group of leading experts in the field.

The Project is funded by SUDEP Action and the bereaved families who support them; with the hope that this helps reduce the number of lives lost to Epilepsy each year.

"A comprehensive and innovative approach to reduce sudden death in patients with epilepsy, and easily transferable outside the UK.” (British Medical Journal)


For those not directly involved in clinical epilepsy care, or for parents/carers, see the free award-winning EpSMon app, and our range of free information and leaflets
