Epilepsy awareness course
Are you working in a role which requires you to have awareness of Epilepsy?
When introducing epilepsy, we must first recognise that there are around 40 different types of seizures.
Statistics show that one in five people will have a seizure at some time in their life although only some of these will be caused by epilepsy.
Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects the brain and the nervous system and is covered by the Equality Act 2010.
The condition can affect people for only a portion of their life, or it can be lifelong.
Because of the varied nature of the condition an awareness of epilepsy and the actions you can take if you are present during a seizure is incredibly useful for those who work in health and social care.
Is this the right Epilepsy awareness course for me?
This Epilepsy awareness course is aimed primarily at people working in the care sector with children or adults however anyone who would like to expand their knowledge or understand what to do if they see someone have a seizure should take this course.
Having a knowledge of Epilepsy and the different types of seizure and the actions you can take if you are present during a seizure will allow you to take a proactive role in ensuring the person is kept safe and as comfortable as possible.
The course is one of a range of health and social care courses that we provide.
