Epilepsy, like other long-term health conditions, comes with certain risks. If left unchecked these can become serious. Risks associated with seizures need to be understood and recognised because knowing about the risks means action can be taken to reduce them.

This course looks at possible risks in the home, outdoor and work environments. The interactive activities demonstrate practical ways to reduce risks for someone with epilepsy. There is also a section related to supporting others and managing if a seizure occurs in a public area.

Please note this course does not cover seizure first aid. For seizure first aid see Epilepsy Essentials.This online course has been designed for anyone wanting to learn more about epilepsy and is suitable for carers, teachers, disability workers and family members.
