Seizure management and Buccal Midazolam training

Our seizure management and Buccal Midalozam training course offers an understanding of epilepsy, along with the simulated administration of rescue medication.

While Buccal Midazolam is the most frequently prescribed rescue medication for prolonged or cluster epilepsy seizures, our fully trained and qualified nurse instructors can also deliver bespoke seizure management and rescue medication administration training should your requirements also include the prescription and use of:

Our experts are happy to offer their advice and deliver customised epilepsy and seizure management training programmes designed to meet your specific needs.
