Epilepsy including Buccal Midazolam Outcomes

This course aims to educate individuals about epilepsy and equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to help them to react calmly, confidently, and competently if someone suffers an epileptic seizure.

This course also covers how to treat epilepsy, if required to, using the rescue medication Buccal Midazolam.

Some key areas that our epilepsy training covers are:

  • What epilepsy is and the different types of epilepsy.
  • Different treatments for epilepsy.
  • When and how to use the epilepsy rescue medication Buccal Midazolam.
  • How to give first aid following a seizure.
  • The importance of protocol and the individual care plan.
  • Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy.
  • All our courses including our epilepsy training are run by experts with practical experience working in the health and social care sector.

On completion of our epilepsy training session, you will receive certification that formally recognises your knowledge and understanding of epilepsy and competence in treating an individual having an epileptic seizure according to national standards.

Your role and responsibilities once qualified

Once this training session has been completed, individuals will possess the skills and knowledge they require to respond safely and competently when faced with a person having an epileptic seizure.

Some key responsibilities that individuals will be able to carry out once they have completed this training session include:

  • Identify signs and symptoms of epilepsy and an epileptic seizure.
  • Provide first aid to a person following an epileptic seizure.
  • Provide treatment for epilepsy.
  • Safely and competently administer the epilepsy rescue medication Buccal Midazolam.
  • Refer to or record a seizure in an individual’s epilepsy care plan.

While most epileptic seizures are not serious, they can sometimes require emergency treatment, or even result in sudden death. To minimise risk to those that suffer from epilepsy, health and social care organisations must invest in educating employees in the condition and its risks so that staff can respond quickly when faced with a person having a seizure.

Here at CBAT, our epilepsy training course is short, affordable, and can be conveniently completed online. Educating employees in epilepsy is a small investment that can have a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of those with the condition.

Upcoming Courses

Epilepsy including Buccal Midazolam Training

Epilepsy is a common neurological condition that can cause seizures or fits. It can affect people of all different ages and causes a variety of symptoms.

Those with epilepsy often experience seizures suddenly and without warning. During a seizure, they may uncontrollably shake or jerk, lose awareness, become stiff, or collapse.

Epileptic seizures can vary in severity, and whilst some seizures may end on their own, others may require emergency treatment.

If an organisation provides care to people with epilepsy, its employees must receive professional epilepsy training so that they know how to respond if someone suffers a seizure.

Here at Care Business Associate Training, we run a 3-hour online training session in epilepsy. The session is suitable for anyone who works in an organisation that cares for people with the condition.
