Epilepsy Awareness (VTQ)
About the Course
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that causes seizures. Not many people know about it, but over 600,000 people in the UK have epilepsy at the moment. Six hundred twelve people are diagnosed with this condition every week, and 21 die related to epilepsy yearly. Head injuries, brain tumours, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s can be associated with symptoms of epilepsy, and some could be genetic causes. In 65% of the cases, the cause is unknown. Emergency admissions to hospitals are alarmingly high - 100,000 people every year! There are over 40 types of seizures that can be different for everyone, so managing epilepsy 24/7 can be challenging. This course on epilepsy is here to help you understand the situation and how to control seizures in the best way for you.
The world has become more aware of different diseases, and epilepsy is no exception. You might be scared of what others will think if they ask about your health, but there's nothing wrong with asking your doctor or loved one about getting a check-up for diseases or conditions like epilepsy. It's an accepted norm now, and it would be great if we all adopted that attitude towards health instead of worrying about what others think! If you have been diagnosed with this condition, then we hope we've managed to give you some information about it so that you can live life as usual as possible!
