BACKGROUND: Being well-informed and knowledgeaUte ailbuftneir illnesses would be a great advantage to children with epilepsy (CWE). Subsequently, an effective education prograry.m! which could .secure interest and simultaneously improve th.i. u*ui.n.5, tnowledge and attitudes (AKA) is essential in enhancing well-being and health outcomes' OBJECTMS: To describe the development of a new interactive inimated epilepsy education programme (IAEEP) for children and to assess its feasibility, acceptalility and practicatily' ..,...,: ili[d11ffi$i'ii:;ffi;ffi'aiffip.,"a;; ;fft.Jaiee..rpii'ary sroup or neurologist, paediatrician, pharmacist' biomedical scientist and educators which was based on two estaUtfdfiFO:epilepsy education programmes: the educational programme.for patients with epilepsy and ttreir relatives (MOSESland.llie mbduLreducational program for children w.ith epilepsy and their 'parents (FAMOsE^S). cwB rtom paediatric departffiiint6i' three general ho^spitals. in Terenggilll"*lij'1]I lL,::*::*_::: fAg5| il';; ."qr"rt.J to complete an eualu'ltion form assessing its feasibility, acceptability and practicality. Descriptive statistics were employed for data analyses (SPS$r?9,.0). RESULTS: Sixteen CWE (median age :'13;ti; #il61* 56.2vo;Malay :8l.2Vo; secondary gchool .: 56.2Vo) a.nd .their corresponding parents were re"iuited.

The average time required to interact with the progru*.. *u, i2.8 minutes (Sb:': :':, range I 8-28 minutes)' The programme was 100% acceptable and received full support from both CWE and theil parents (1007o)' CONCLUSIONS: The tavourable findings from this study add to the growing evidence suggesting that investment in interactive and animated education programme iqqld be both feasible, well-received by patients and could be a potentially valuable approach to increase access and effectiveness of epilepsy care especially among CWE.
