Abstract [en]

This study aimed to identify the issues experienced as essential in rehabilitation for persons with epilepsy. Six focus group interviews were conducted, five groups with patients that had completed comprehensive rehabilitation for persons with epilepsy, in a day-care setting, at the Neurological Rehabilitation Clinic at Stora Sköndal Hospital, between 2006 and 2009 (total n=17) and one group with staff members (n=5). Using content analysis, two themes emerged: life with epilepsy and rehabilitation experiences. The result emphasizes that rehabilitation for persons with epilepsy should be designed individually, in structure and in content. Encounters between patients were important, as well as the team's attitude in meeting with the patients. Therapeutic working alliance is essential between patients and staff for creating an individual rehabilitation.
