The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility and efficacy of the home-based cognitive self-management program "HOBSCOTCH" delivered at four New England medical centers. It will test the long-term impact and cost-effectiveness of HOBSCOTCH, and whether it can be delivered from a distance utilizing e-health tools for parts of the program.

Study summary:

HOBSCOTCH (Home Based Self-management and Cognitive Training Changes lives) is a home-based self-management program to treat cognitive symptoms and improve quality of life, while minimizing the barriers of access to care. The program is based on Problem Solving Therapy (PST) and teaches problem solving strategies and compensatory mechanisms to help manage cognitive dysfunction and enhance quality of life. HOBSCOTCH Phase II is a replication study of the original HOBSCOTCH study, designed to translate the findings of HOBSCOTCH into a real world setting. This is a multi-center study, with the HOBSCOTCH intervention being implemented at four epilepsy clinics in New England.
