EANS Strategic Plan 2014 – 2016

Whenever you have a destination in mind, it’s important to have a plan for how you’re going to get there.

The following goals and objectives are highlights of a collaborative strategic planning process that included EANS staff and board members during the fall of 2014. This plan is a “living document”, which means that it can and will change over time as we grow as an organization. It is also a starting place for a broader conversation with our members about the role of EANS and how we can best accomplish our mission into the future.

Goal 1: Strengthen links between EANS and health centres

Objective a) Display EANS materials in the waiting rooms of every walk-in clinic, GP’s office, neurologist’s office, and diagnostic site (EEG, etc.) by February 2015.

Objective b) Complete a survey of epilepsy treatment experiences in NS in to determine how EANS can better support persons with epilepsy throughout the treatment process by February 2016.

Goal 2: Expand existing programs beyond HRM

Objective a) Train and activate three EANS Ambassadors representing different NS districts by September 2015.

Goal 3: Reduce the fear and stigma surrounding seizures

Objective b) Develop a Seizure First Aid training program by August 2015.

Goal 4: Identify and celebrate those living well with epilepsy
