Conditional information

The calculation is the risk of the pregnant woman having any siezure in pregnancy and up to 6 weeks after delivery. Use of the model in clinical practice should be complementary to individualised advice on safety, risk assessment, adherence and triggers for seizures. 
Women predicted to have a low risk of seizure should be informed that their risk status is subject to adherence to their anti-epileptic medication.
