Epilepsy training with buccal midazolam competency

There are various manifestations of epilepsy, all of which require different levels of support and treatment depending on the individual involved.

Momentum People offers several epilepsy awareness training modules to cover all complexities. Foundation awareness training is designed to give participants an overview of the condition and cover the causes, symptoms, types of seizures and treatment options.

The advanced modules familiarise participants with the process of administering epilepsy medication options.
