Epilepsy Awareness (optional inclusion of administration of emergency medication)
Epilepsy is a condition that affects the brain. People with epilepsy have a tendency to have some form of epileptic seizures. Anyone could have a one-off seizure, but this doesn’t always mean they have epilepsy.
Epilepsy is usually diagnosed when someone has had more than one seizure, and a doctor thinks there is a risk of them having more.Epilepsy can start at any age and there are many different types. Some types of epilepsy last for a limited time and the person eventually stops having seizures. But for many people epilepsy is a life-long condition.
This half day or full day course is useful for anyone with an interest or a need to understand the condition to better support a person who suffered with the condition. It explores the different ways that epilepsy can affect a person and the various potential treatments. It also looks at appropriate procedures for supporting individuals during a seizure event (optional additional details on use and administration of emergency medication).
