Abstract

Telemedicine (TM) is the use of telecommunications' technologies to provide medical information and services. Telehealth (TH) permits broader and psychosocial support for patients and their families. We aimed to highlight the importance of the use of TH for all aspects of epilepsy, either for the scientific aspects (e.g, research, education, care, management etc.) or for the social matters (e.g., education, sensitization, association support, etc.).
