Epilepsy Bill of Rights
The Bill of Rights for People Living with Epilepsy
People with epilepsy should take an active role in managing their healthcare and ensuring their rights are respected; however, any and all treatment decisions must be made together with their healthcare team.
The Bill of Rights for People Living with Epilepsy is not a legal document. The 10 rights are aspirational goals that the epilepsy community is striving to achieve. None of the information should be construed as medical or legal advice and recipients of this document should not make decisions or take actions based on the information contained in this document without obtaining appropriate medical or legal counsel from a qualified, licensed professional.
The Bill of Rights program is conducted by the Epilepsy Foundation and Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation.
