About the Course

About the Course

Duration: 10 minutes (approx.)

Epilepsy is a common chronic condition that affects the brain and causes seizures, bursts of electrical activity in the brain that temporarily affects how it works. When someone has epilepsy, they tend to have epileptic seizures. It means that employers need to support employees in carrying out an appropriate risk assessment and supporting their care plan in the workplace.

This essential CPD course provides you with the core content you need to understand what epilepsy is and how employers can manage and support those with epilepsy in the workplace, including risk assessments and reasonable adjustments.

Split into bite-size modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere.
