Epilepsy & Seizure Response for EMS
Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan is pleased to announce the availability of an accredited online training for EMS professionals entitled Epilepsy & Seizure Response for EMS. There is no cost to complete this training, and 1.5 continuing education credits are available through the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS), the national accrediting body for EMS continuing education (CE) courses and course providers.

The course takes about an hour to complete. It describes a variety of seizures associated with epilepsy, seizures with other potential causes, appropriate EMS response on scene, and issues to be considered when determining whether or not further medical care is warranted.
