Epilepsy Awareness

must-have   

Course Description

Our Epilepsy Awareness training course entitled An Understanding of Epilepsy introduces delegates to the essential basics of epilepsy as a neurological condition covering its causes, symptoms and how to properly approach and deal with epileptic seizures.

 

Each case of epilepsy is to a large extent unique – some individuals suffer seizures on a regular basis while others may never have faced the distress of a single seizure. Professional care for epilepsy demands a proactive attitude in order to prevent injuries during seizures and offer the most appropriate assistance before, during and after any such episodes.

 

Our Epilepsy training course follows a person centred approach and precision healthcare to ensure the safety and wellbeing of those with epilepsy.
