The handbook was found to be a viable tool to promote EEG interpretation in the African setting, where foundation skills are needed. However, optimal outcomes were evident with additional individual tutoring, as well as on-going support to maintain skills. This curriculum will be adapted into a post-graduate qualification intended to generate clinicians with key basic EEG skills, but not fully trained electrophysiologists. Currently, in the African setting, for maximum impact on patient care, this approach is considered the most likely to have the furthest reach.
