The opinions of epilepsy patients matter to us! STRIVE is a survey developed by Dr. Robert Knowlton, director of the UCSF seizure Disorders Surgery Program. The survey was created to help Dr. Knowlton and researchers from other institutions learn what patients with epilepsy might think about a study that is being planned in the future.
The STRIVE survey describes a research study for a specific type of epilepsy surgery in comparison to continued medical treatment, and then asks patients to think about whether, if they were asked to participate in a similar study, they would do so.
Any patient with epilepsy is welcome to participate in the survey; we value each patient’s input!
