All about this Epilepsy Awareness Course

During this course, we will explore Epilepsy as a neurological condition in depth including the types of seizures and triggers which may affect an individual. The course will also explore the law regarding epilepsy and those who suffer from it. Finally, it will look at the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy, and the support available, epilepsy organisations and charities will be listed as useful aids for further information.

This course will explain what epilepsy is and how it may occur in individuals. The effect of epilepsy on adults and children will be looked at individually. It will also touch upon the types of seizures that are most common and begin to outline what signs and symptoms may be seen during a seizure. You will also look at epileptic seizures in more depth. It will highlight the different types of seizures you may encounter, and how to respond accordingly. This will include information on when to seek emergency assistance. The unit will outline what may trigger an epileptic seizure and what types of epilepsy this may relate to. Finally, the unit will explore how an epileptic seizure impacts the body and how this may impact the person physiologically.

You will also will explore the law relating to epilepsy and those who suffer from epilepsy. Laws such as those relating to employment and driving will be explored. The unit will then look at how epilepsy can affect an individual’s life and wellbeing, and how this impact may be minimised. The unit will then explore how the risk of epileptic seizures may be reduced and therefore the impact of epilepsy lessened.

Finally at the end of the course you will explore the process of diagnosis for epilepsy and how this is made.
