Epilepsy and the Law DVD
This training DVD is aimed at all professionals working in the law sector.
Made by Epilepsy Scotland, in partnership with Police Scotland and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) this DVD clearly explains the issues for people with epilepsy including examples of post-seizure behaviour commonly mistaken for drunk or disorderly conduct. Features interviews with key experts and reconstructed examples with professional actors.
This DVD is invaluable CPD for police, lawyers and any professional who regularly comes into contact with people who may be wrongly thought to be drunk and disorderly – but may actually be having a seizure or in a post-seizure state. We know for a fact that this training material has to date kept two individuals out of jail – both wrongly accused of unlawful behaviour that was actually linked to seizure activity.
