Abstract: Epilepsy is the most common neurological condition globally. Integrating health and social care is fundamental in epilepsy management, but the scope of progress in this area is unclear. This scoping review aimed to capture the range and type of integrated care components and models in epilepsy management. Four databases were searched for articles published since 2010 that reported on integrated care in epilepsy. Data were extracted and synthesised into components of integrated care that had been implemented or recommended only. Models of integrated care were identified, and their components tabulated. Fifteen common and interrelated components of integrated care emerged that were aligned with four broad areas: healthcare staff and pathways (e.g., epilepsy nurses); tasks and services (e.g., care coordination); education and engagement (e.g., shared decision making); and technology for diagnosis and communication (e.g., telehealth). Twelve models of integrated care were identified; seven were implemented and five were recommended. There is a growing evidence-base supporting integrated, person-centred epilepsy care, but implementation is challenged by entrenched silos, underdeveloped pathways for care, and deficits in epilepsy education. Integrating epilepsy care relies on changes to workforce development and policy frameworks to support whole-of-system vision for improving care.
