Education and Training

A key priority for Epilepsy Action Australia is delivering the very best education and training nationwide to people with epilepsy, their families, caregivers and the wider network of people involved.

While we are incredibly proud of our heritage as the oldest provider of epilepsy services in this country.

We have an extensive number of online tools and resources to deliver flexible, user friendly education and training options. In particular our Online Academy provides vital and practical information about epilepsy and seizures for a variety of audiences.

Catering to a Wide Variety of Audiences

Our commitment to building a better future for all Australians with epilepsy is to provide programs, training and education that cater to a wide variety of audiences to ensure they have a good understanding of epilepsy and respond to seizures appropriately. This includes parents and family members, teachers, carers, and employers right through to health workers, specialists, general practitioners, aged and disability workers and nurses. We also have courses and resources tailored for specific groups such as the disability sector, indigenous Australians, and specific age-groups, such as seniors, children, teenagers and young adults.

Building Knowledge and Skills

Our services aim to reduce risks and safety hazards associated with epilepsy and seizures, and increase general awareness to reduce widespread stigma. They include:

  • an Online Academy for individual self-paced learning
  • group training for schools, disability organisations and the community
  • workshops, seminars and webinars tailored to specific needs
  • emergency medication training.
