From: The quality of care for adults with epilepsy: an initial glimpse using the QUIET measure

Aspect of Epilepsy Care N*** All Neurology Only Shared care Primary Care Only
First seizure assessment $ 63 64/151 = 42.38% 41/106 = 38.70% 20/35 = 57.14% 3/10 = 30.00%
Initial epilepsy treatment 63 131/297 = 44.11% 88/203 = 43.35% 40/75 = 53.33% 3/19 = 15.79%
Chronic epilepsy care 302 635/1409 = 45.07% 381/897 = 42.47% 218/393 = 55.47% 36/119 = 30.25%
Aspects of care unique to women $ 108 47/128 = 36.72% 27/81 = 33.33% 19/37 = 51.35% 1/10 = 10.00%
  1. $ Insufficient N for Primary Care Only; unable to compare.
  2. * p < 0.05
  3. **p < .01
  4. ***N that could potentially qualify for inclusion in analysis if all inclusion criteria for a specific quality indicator are met.
  5. The numerator in each column represents the number of possible care processes that were performed; the denominator represents the number of possible care processes. For specific numbers of patients, and specific indicators included in each aspect of epilepsy care please refer to Table 2.
