Learning aims

The course aims to make carers aware of the particular challenges, physical and emotional, that clients, with epilepsy, may face. It highlights the need to see beyond the illness; to care for the client as an individual. It asks carers to recognise clients rights to make choices for themselves; even if the options they choose may not be risk free.
