Epilepsy Awareness

 

Epilepsy Awareness

 

Who should attend:

Anyone wanting a deeper awareness of epilepsy, how it affects lifestyles, guidance on how to help during a seizure and how to plan ahead to minimise danger of injury.

 

Course benefits:

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterised by recurrent seizures. Its effects can be extremely debilitating and distressful for sufferers and those present during a seizure.  This course provides guidance on how to assist and help to manage seizures.

 

Additional information:

This course may be extended to a full day to include instruction and practice (using anatomically correct manikins) of the administration of rectal Diazepam and Buccal Midazolam.  Epilepsy is normally controlled through medication. However, around 30% of the estimated 50 million persons who suffer with epilepsy worldwide will never gain full control.

All candidates who participate to the required level will receive a certificate of attendance from Essential Training
