Abstract

Guidelines and quality measures for epilepsy care have the potential to improve the quality of epilepsy care. Quality measures are increasingly used for pay-for-performance. This article describes different guidelines and quality measures that have been used to identify best practices, types of best practices for use in clinical care developed using each of these approaches, and information on how to interpret the recommendations in specific guidelines and quality measures described elsewhere in this issue.
