Coming across an individual that struggles with epilepsy in your care is not uncommon. You are required to recognise subtle symptoms and anticipate possible acute, physical reactions. The neurological disorder is triggered by abnormal electrical activity in the brain, and it is essential that you know how you can best anticipate seizures.

This course equips you with the knowledge and skills to notice the signs of a seizure. Some warning signs can tell you a seizure is imminent. When you know these and have developed robust and open communication with the individual, you’ll be better placed to deal with the outcome.

During the session, you’ll cover the following:

  • An explanation of the main causes of Epilepsy
  • How to recognise the signs and symptoms of the different forms of the condition
  • An underpinning knowledge of the common triggers for seizures
  • Diagnostic procedures – the signs to look for and what they signify
  • Guidelines for the ongoing treatment of Epilepsy
  • The medicines used for the treatment of Epilepsy and their side effects and contraindications
  • The kinds of complementary therapies that are often used in the treatment of Epilepsy and they can help
  • How and when to record seizures properly
  • Effective First Aid for Epilepsy patients
  • An understanding of “Status Epilepticus”

This course is a half-day course. It comprises a mixture of engaging activities. Once the course is completed, you will be asked to complete a simple multiple-choice assessment. You will be given a certificate to acknowledge the passing of the course.
