PLEASE HELP WITH THIS SURVEY

Preconception Care Pathway Survey

ESNA members are invited to take part in an important preconception care pathway online Delphi survey.

 The survey is an exciting next stage of this study to develop a preconception care pathway for women with epilepsy in the UK.

This survey is the first of a two-round online survey.  ESNA membership is requested to complete this survey within the next two weeks (by 31st May 2022).

ESNA members who have already let Dr Janine Winterbottom PhD know their interest to participate should have received an email linking to complete their registration and start the survey. 

Would ESNA members, where possible, also share with persons they feel might be of interest and might not be on Dr Winterbottom's mailing list.

We are keen to involve as many healthcare professionals/voluntary organisation members who share a role in support of women with epilepsy who might wish to plan pregnancy, including primary, secondary and tertiary care providers.
