Past participants have told us that they feel more confident in recognising seizure activity and providing person-centred support to people living with epilepsy after completing our training programs.
People living with epilepsy experience better support through improved epilepsy knowledge, Epilepsy Management Plan development, seizure first aid response strategies and emergency medication administration training.
Through our education and training programs we build the capacity of individuals and families, organisations and the community to better understand and support the needs of people living with epilepsy. In this way we are working towards creating an ’epilepsy smart’ Australia.
1 in 200 Australian students live with epilepsy. Our Epilepsy Smart Schools program has been developed to support these learners but also teachers, schools and school communities. An important element of becoming a recognised Epilepsy Smart School is training, which is available through our Education and Training Team (and partners in other states and territories).
Why choose us for epilepsy training?
