Patient Resource Programs

Patient resources for VNS Therapy are here to help you through your decision-making process

Additional information may be helpful as you make decisions about your long-term treatment options. VNS Therapy patient programs are here to help you. That's why you are invited to join the Connections program. As a member of this free program, you will benefit from a wide range of educational activities and resources.

You'll receive newsletters and brochures that provide specific information to help you at each step of the decision-making process.

You can talk toll-free to a VNS Therapy nurse case manager who can answer your questions about VNS Therapy during your decision-making process. They can also provide step-by-step information about VNS Therapy over the phone using the downloadable VNS Therapy Educational Flip Chart (also available in Spanish). In addition, they can help you with medical insurance coverage.

You may also choose to participate in teleconferences in which you can talk with others who have received VNS Therapy.
