The Epilepsy Program has two primary practice locations: the out-patient clinic and the in-patient Epilepsy Monitoring Unit.
The out-patient clinic is a fully staffed, dedicated space for only epilepsy patients within The University of Kansas Hospital. Our clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist also see patients in this location for mood assessment, cognitive counseling and further treatment of non-epileptic events.
The in-patient Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) is part of a 32-bed in-patient neurology unit. The EMU has eight rooms specifically built for epilepsy monitoring with in-room video cameras. Nursing staff receives regular training for care of epilepsy patients, both acutely during seizures, as well as routine care during the specialized EMU admission, particularly for patients with intracranial electrodes.
The University of Kansas Hospital, a more than 750-bed hospital, partners with the University of Kansas Medical Center and the Department of Neurology for medical education. It is the secondary and tertiary referral center for the state of Kansas and a level I trauma center. The hospital's new Cambridge Tower has a 32-bed neurology ward on the sixth floor and a 28-bed neurological intensive care unit on the fifth floor. The nurses on these units are trained in neurological disorders and part of the Stroke Rapid Response assessment team.
Additionally, the Archie Dykes Library at the University of Kansas Medical Center has an extensive collection of journals, both electronic and traditional. Currently, there is electronic access to more than 13,000 journals through the university's library system, and off-site access is easily available using a proxy login to campus servers.
