This one-and-a-half hour course is designed to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to effectively administer emergency seizure medications such as midazolam via appropriate routes (Buccal or LMA- intranasal atomiser).
Participants will learn to manage prolonged and clustered seizures with medications; why they are required and when; the types of documentation involved; their own duty of care responsibilities during the process; and how to administer the medications in a safe and timely manner as per the epilepsy management plan and specialist’s orders.
