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.

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.
