Introduction to Epilepsy Awareness

The Introduction to Epilepsy Awareness course is primarily aimed at people working in the care sector; either with children or adults. It’s also applicable to anyone who would like to expand their knowledge or understand what to do if they see someone have a seizure. This course is also a great one to do alongside first aid training. It expands on the information relating to seizures that is usually taught as part of first aid.

Did you know 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. 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.

This course will give you an overview of epilepsy. It lists the methods of diagnosis, what a seizure is and how the brain can be affected. It will introduce some possible seizure triggers and describe what to do when someone has a seizure. It will also discuss some of the treatments offered to people with epilepsy and provide practical advice on what you can do if you witness someone having a seizure.

Having a knowledge of Epilepsy, the different types of seizure and the actions you can take during a seizure, will allow you to take a proactive role in ensuring the person is kept safe and as comfortable as possible. CPD approval means that this course can be used by those that need to prove they are continually developing themselves.

If you would like to further your skills and be prepared for situations that might require a first line response, then our Emergency First aid in the workplace or Paediatric First Aid courses are both
great next steps from this one. For those people that have already completed First Aid training then another course that can complement your knowledge is Diabetes Awareness.
