Epilepsy Awareness Training Online Course Description

CPD Approved

When introducing the epilepsy awareness training online course, 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.

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.

Target Audience

This epilepsy awareness online 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.

This course is also a great one to do alongside first aid training, as it expands on the information relating to seizures which is usually taught as part of first aid.
