Epilepsy Awareness

Course Description

Our Epilepsy Awareness course introduces delegates to the essential basics of epilepsy as a neurological condition. The training course covers its causes, symptoms and how to properly approach and manage epileptic seizures. 

Each case of epilepsy is to a large extent unique. Some individuals suffer seizures on a regular basis whilst others may never have faced the distress of a single seizure. Epilepsy care can therefore differ greatly from patient to patient. A comprehensive overview of the condition helps to ensure all patients are safely and effectively cared for. Our Epilepsy Awareness course is ideal for this purpose. 

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. Delivered by expert healthcare educators, our Epilepsy Awareness course follows a person centred approach and precision healthcare to ensure the safety and wellbeing of those with epilepsy.
