Awareness talks - Epilepsy Scotland

These awareness talks provide a brief introduction to epilepsy and will cover:

  • different seizure types
  • causes of epilepsy
  • its effects on people’s lives
  • common seizure triggers
  • epilepsy treatments
  • first aid for seizures

The talk will include video footage of different seizure types demonstrating how subtle some seizures can be.

Attending one of these talks will give you the skills to react sensitively and effectively if someone has a seizure. These talks are delivered in the workplace and can be tailored to your needs. There is a fixed cost of £150, which covers the trainer’s fee and their travel expenses.

Please contact our Office Manager, Jacqui Telfer on 0131 659 4730 or email jtelfer@epilepsyscotland.org.uk for more information or to book a place.

We also do awareness talks for schools.
