The National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) is an organization that supports epilepsy centers with standards of care, center services access, and expert knowledge. There are over 230 epilepsy centers in the US that are members of the group and the NAEC offers an accreditation program to ensure that all members are up to the standards of care and guidelines.
The NAEC website features three main sections: What Is An Epilepsy Center?, For Patients, and For Members. Users can learn about what an epilepsy center is and the guidelines and processes that go into accreditation. For Patients features videos and written material that answers common questions that patients have. The final section features resources for NAEC members and requires a log-in to access.
