Patients assigned to this arm will be invited to complete a web-based nursing intervention called EPI-TAVIE.
ÉPI-TAVIE is a web-based intervention focusing on epilepsy self-management. This interactive session (25 minutes) is facilitated by a virtual nurse.
Patients assigned to this arm will be invited to consult a validated list of predetermined conventional websites.
The conventional websites offers reliable information about epilepsy. Their content were validated by experts.
- Self-management [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Self-management will be measured with the Epilepsy Self-Management Scale (Dilorio et al., 1994). The scale is composed of 38 items that assess the degree to which people perform tasks to manage their epilepsy. It is composed of five subscales: medication management, information management, seizure management, safety management and lifestyle management.
- Acceptability of the intervention [ Time Frame: 1 month ]Acceptability will be evaluated through a self-administered questionnaire composed of items regarding satisfaction with the approach, convenience of use, ease of understanding, relevance, dosage and overall appreciation (Côté et al., 2012).
- Feasibility of the intervention [ Time Frame: 1 month ]Feasibility will be assessed by an evaluation of exposition to intervention: for each participants, the number of page viewed will be recorded. Fidelity to the intervention structure will be obtained by comparing the projected number of pages view to the number of viewed pages, thus addressing its feasibility.
