Self-efficacy in seizure management differentially correlated with quality of life in persons with epilepsy depending on seizure recurrence and felt stigma

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized primarily by recurrent and unpredictable seizures. Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is significantly impacted in persons with epilepsy, not only by recurrent seizures, but also due to impaired psychosocial functioning [1,2]. As management of recurrent seizures improves, impaired psychosocial functioning may become the greater concern for HRQoL in persons with epilepsy [1].
