Course Description

This Understanding Epilepsy course aims to build on your understanding of what it means to have epilepsy and your caring experience.  The course will suggest lots of ideas about how you can help people in your care who have this condition.

The programme is suitable for staff working in hospitals, care homes, day centres, and in people’s own homes.  This is reflected in the words used to refer to the people receiving care; ‘patient’, ‘resident’, and ‘client’ are used.

The Understanding Epilepsy programme is at Level 2, the equivalent of GCSE or ‘O’ Level. This programme is divided into 12 modules, each covering a different aspect of the condition of epilepsy.
There is an activities booklet containing the activities you need to complete successfully to pass the course.  These are marked by a tutor, who will give you written feedback on your assessments and also give you support and guidance. Each module is assessed by a module assessment, so there are twelve assessments in total. There is more on this in the next section: ‘Introduction to Distance Learning’.

Each module of the Understanding Epilepsy programme begins within an introduction, and states the learning outcomes for the module.  Learning outcomes are statements explaining what you will understand or be able to do by the time you have finished studying each module.  You will see that the assessment questions are closely linked to the learning outcomes.  You can check whether you have met the each learning outcome by successfully completing the associated assessment questions.

Modules

Module 1: An introduction to the brain
Module 2: Different epilepsy syndromes
Module 3: Causes of epilepsy
Module 4: Diagnosing epilepsy
Module 5: Treating epilepsy
Module 6: What to do when someone is having a seizure
Module 7: Managing epilepsy
Module 8: Impact of epilepsy on a person's life
Module 9: Supporting vulnerable people with epilepsy
Module 10: Maintaining dignity and respect
Module 11: Explaining the myths
Module 12: Relevant UK legislation

    Brilliant and so supportive!

    Now on my second course having enjoyed doing my first so much. Paperwork delivered straight to my door and fantastic mentor at the end of phone/email whenever needed.

    Work was always marked within 2/3 days with feedback and there was no pressure to stick to strict deadlines, you are free to complete modules in your own time. Would defo recommend to anyone looking to do home learning as its a great service and there's plenty of support if needed.

    Fantastic - I'm on my second course

    My course work arrived straight to my door. I was able to get started straight away and have the support of my brilliant mentor Maria. Her feed back was so encouraging and this really spurred me on to do even better.

    I sent each Module off when complete and had a response shortly after to clarify my work was with my mentor for marking. My results would arrive 2-3 days later. I found NCC so accessible and relevant to my work that I am now on my second course and already looking to do a third.
