Public Training Booking
Overview/Content
1 in 5 people with an intellectual disability are likely to have epilepsy. This microcredential is a must for support workers who provide high intensity daily personal activity support for people living with epilepsy. The complex care training develops the essential knowledge and skills to understand and recognise epilepsy, trigger factors and the different types of seizures. The management of different seizures is thoroughly explained.

The trainer will examine and discuss different types of medications used to treat epilepsy, as well as strategies for minimising the risks for participants with epilepsy during everyday activities. This course includes the safe principles and techniques of emergency medication administration in accordance with a sample epilepsy management plan and emergency medication plan.
