Providing high-quality epilepsy services based on the latest evidence.

Dividing Line

The Epilepsy Smart Australia Program is a much-needed and very exciting opportunity to better support Australians living with epilepsy, their families and carers.

Epilepsy Smart Australia is a national program that will provide a new range of high-quality epilepsy services that are based on the latest evidence and will improve the quality of life for people living with epilepsy and those who support them.  The Australian Government is supporting the development of this new Program.

The Program is a true collaboration of state-based epilepsy service providers, coordinated by the Epilepsy Foundation and will be progressively made available to people with epilepsy across all States and Territories.

Strong relationships with peak bodies, consumers and other organisations that support people with epilepsy across metropolitan, regional and remote and culturally diverse communities will ensure services reach those who need them.
