Epilepsy Awareness

New remote delivery - updated with COVID-19 specific information

Aim

The aim of this training is to increase awareness of Epilepsy. This awareness will help reduce the stigma and discrimination that still exists despite the introduction of the Equality Act (2010).

Increased awareness of how an individual may be affected by Epilepsy will assist staff to understand how they may feel, leading to how they may behave. This understanding enables staff to give more effective support to assist the individuals to have increased independence and reduced risk.

There is currently no evidence of there being an increased risk of Coronavirus infection in people with epilepsy whose seizures are well controlled; however, those with uncontrolled seizures and particularly seizures triggered by fever or infection, may be more vulnerable. 

NAPPI Remote Delivery 

The awareness session is three-hours long, delivered over two 90 minute blocks.

Block 1: Definitions, Types of seizure 

Block 2: Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy, First Aid for Seizures, Strategies

This award is a stand-alone-course that has strong links to the NAPPI Positive Behaviour Support Model. The more employees are aware about how an individual has been affected by epilepsy, the more that can be done to reduce behaviour of concern and empower them to have a better quality of life.
