Epilepsy Awareness – About this training course
Epilepsy Awareness – 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. This course is incredibly useful for those working with both children and adults with this condition. As a result of taking this course you will develop an awareness of epilepsy and the actions you can take if you are present during a seizure.
This course gives you an overview of epilepsy. You learn about the methods of diagnosis, what a seizure is and how the brain can be affected. The course then introduces you to some possible seizure triggers and you are told what to do when someone has a seizure. Finally, you will also learn about some of the treatments offered to people with epilepsy.
