|Abstract:||© 2020 Elsevier Ltd Objective: To establish a consensus which is practical and ready-to-use on investigations (ISE) and for management of status epilepticus (MSE) in adults using a modified Delphi approach. Patients and methods: A 4-round modified Delphi approach was used. First and second rounds were conducted using Google® survey with structured statements and 6-point Likert scale response. Threshold agreement was set to ≥80%. Third round was a face-to-face meeting aimed to facilitate the development of approach algorithms for ISE and MSE. Fourth round was a final review asking participants to rate the algorithms post completion. Results: The panel consisted of 8 board-certified epileptologists along with 6 neurologists from main regional hospitals across Thailand. Thirty-seven statements for ISE and 68 statements for MSE were used for the Round I survey, 17/37 (45.9%) and 49/68 (72.1%) reached threshold agreement (≥80%). The average absolute-agreement intraclass correlation coefficients for ISE and MSE were 0.82 (95% CI 0.71, 0.89) and 0.81 (95% CI 0.73, 0.87), respectively; indicating good extent of consensus among participants. Upon Round II, further 10/18 (55.6%) for ISE and 10/19 (52.6%) for MSE reached agreement. In Round III, face-to-face point-by-point discussion was performed to generate approach algorithms. All (100%) provided positive responses with the algorithms post completion in Round IV. Conclusion: A practical and ready-to-use consensus using modified Delphi approach on ISE and MSE was developed in a Thai regional hospital context. In real practice, this approach is more suitable and feasible for a localized setting when compared with totally adopting international guidelines.|
