Title: In the driving seat: what’s the risk with epilepsy?

A ‘one-size fits all’ approach is often given to epilepsy patients by society, but Laura Bonnett, armed with statistics, sought to change this. By investigating the risk of epileptic seizures based on a person’s characteristics she influenced the DVLA to reduce their epilepsy driving restrictions. Here she explores ‘risk’ and shares her experience of the life-changing applications of statistics in epilepsy research.
