Having a plan for seizures

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.

SMP’s are a practical tool that can be used by all caregivers in any setting to manage seizures, safety and seizure emergencies.  This will help to reduce 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 for seizure emergencies, we can assist with this and offer the necessary training. Your doctor will fill out an emergency medication order and prescription for the medication first.
