Epilepsy is a brain disorder, marked by a tendency to have recurrent seizures (also referred to as ‘fits’ or ‘convulsions’). There are over 40 different types of seizures. Epilepsy can affect anyone, at any age and from any walk of life, although it’s most common in young children and older adults. The purpose of this module is to improve the learner’s understanding of epilepsy, including causes and triggers, types of seizure and methods of treatment. We look at the signs and symptoms of the condition and learn why misdiagnosis can be common.
