First Seizure Video
We have created the First Seizure video for parents/carers of young people who present with a first seizure. It provides important safety information and details on medical follow-up that families should receive prior to discharge home. The video can also be used as a teaching resource for junior medical staff.
Living Well with Epilepsy Video
We have created a video for teenagers with epilepsy which includes important information regarding: safety precautions to reduce risks; making wise choices regarding medications, sleep, drugs and alcohol; driving regulations; mood support; pregnancy and contraception; travelling; and transition to adult services. The video can also be used as a teaching resource for junior medical staff.
Midazolam Information for Parents/Carers.
We have created an education video for parents/carers on the safe administration of buccal midazolam (see below). This resource is only to be used by parents after instruction and demonstration on the safe administration of midazolam by a healthcare professional. It is an adjunct to education, not the first educational tool.
The following resources may also be helpful for parents/carers whose child has been prescribed buccal midazolam.
