This Epilepsy with Buccal Midazolam and Rectal Diazepam training course is aimed at those working with or responsible for the welfare and well being of individuals with epilepsy.

The course is designed to ensure that practitioners are provided with relevant theoretical knowledge and skills, whilst supported with a simulated practical based assessment.

Please note: Competency is achieved in the workplace following the training using a competency framework. Each procedure needs to be signed off by a qualified, senior member of staff. Theory certificates will be issued initially, once completed competency forms are returned to us (within six months of training) a competency certificate can then be issued.
