Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Transition Age Youth with Epilepsy (TAYWE) struggle to gain the skills necessary to effectively manage self-care routines. A mobile health system may be an effective means of providing remote support and increasing self-management skills, while providing caregivers with the ability to monitor health status and activities. This presentation shares the qualitative results gathered via focus groups from both TAYWE and their caregivers to help design an innovative mHealth system to support their needs.
