Epilepsy i-learn module

Epilepsy i-learn module

Epilepsy is the most common serious, potentially life threatening neurological condition to encounter in pregnancy and up to a year postnatally. Increasing midwifery knowledge about epilepsy can potentially reduce morbidity and mortality rates through recognition of risks and a deteriorating medical condition. For women with epilepsy the risk of dying during or in the year following pregnancy is ten times higher than women without epilepsy. In the majority of maternities with epilepsy who have died, improvement in multi-professional care may have prevented their death.

This i-learn module on epilepsy aims to:
• develop knowledge and understanding of epilepsy, its treatment and management
• improve midwives confidence in supporting pregnant women and their relatives more effectively as part of a wider multidisciplinary team
