COPE (Community Outreach Parent Empowerment)
COPE (Community Outreach Parent Empowerment) is an innovative collaboration between CHOC Neuroscience Institute nurses and expert family advocates with the goal of sharing experiences and providing the community with tools to guide families through an epilepsy diagnosis. COPE holds monthly nurse- and parent-led meetings offered to both inpatient and outpatient families. Meetings will explore topics such as seizure first aide, diastat administration and the navigation of clinic and inpatient hospital admissions. Community Partners and epilepsy experts will often attend meetings and share about their resources and specialties. Meetings also feature parent champions, including Q&A sessions with parent panels, tips for managing ACTH injections at home and discussions about epilepsy surgery from a parent perspective.
