As everyone’s epilepsy is different, there is a need of an individual plan on how to manage the person’s epilepsy. To be cared for respectfully and safely in the workplace, in the school environment and in a respite environment can be life saving.
This plan should be current, accurate and easy to understand. The plan should be developed by the person or people who have the most knowledge and experience of the person’s epilepsy and seizures. It is very important for the person with epilepsy to be part of this planning process. A team approach to developing a plan is often helpful. Epilepsy Queensland recommends this plan be reviewed and signed by the person’s doctor.
