Seizure Management Planning

Home > How we can help > Our Services > Seizure Management Planning

There is often the need to have a more formalised plan in place if a seizure may occur outside the home environment such as at school or in the workplace. These are often referred to as seizure management plans.

A seizure management plan (SMP) is a document providing essential information to anyone who may be in a position to assist someone having a seizure – whether that be family, friends, carers, teachers, colleagues or other involved professionals. They are a practical tool that can be used by all caregivers in all settings to manage seizures and seizure emergencies, treatments and safety.  This will help to minimise both the impact of seizures on the person’s daily life and the risk of injury in the event of a seizure.

If you also need an emergency medication plan we can assist with this as well and offer the necessary training.

We have an online tool where you can create your own SMP
