Summary: Rendering the patient seizure-free is the foremost goal of treating persons with epilepsy (PWE) as seizure control is strongly correlated with quality of life, morbidity, and mortality. Unhealthy people are less likely to establish and maintain social relationships. At the same time, additional factors must be considered, which contribute to the total burden of epilepsy. These factors include depression and anxiety, memory problems, social stigma, disability, employment limitations, behavioral risk factors, and antiseizure drug side effects, all of which add to the burden of epilepsy. Achieving the primary goal of treatment of epilepsy allows for greater independence and improved quality and duration of life. However, even with optimal seizure control, PWE struggle with extra burdens and that must be considered in order to provide the best possible care.

Several articles cited throughout the chapter cite the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS).
