Abstract

Objective: to assess the status of the epileptological service in Russia by conducting a questionnaire survey of epileptologists working in different regions of the Russian Federation.

The questionnaire data are presented as diagrams and expressed as a percentage.
Results. The analysis of data obtained allows to assess differences in the structure of the epileptological service in diverse regions of Russia, the level of care transition and interaction between outpatient and inpatient specialists, specialists in various fields as well as those involved in the scientific and practical fields of healthcare. Besides, it has also started to shape insight into further development of epileptological service in Russia envisioned by practicing epileptologists.
