FULLY BOOKED Epilepsy Awareness & the Administration of Buccal Midazolam

Wednesday, July 21, 2021

Buccal Midazolam is a rescue medication which is administered during a seizure under medical advice to reduce seizure duration. Given promptly, this relatively simple procedure can prevent major disruption to daily life resulting from hospital emergency treatment. Epilepsy Ireland has been training professionals through a one-day classroom-based programme programme for over 10 years. In 2019 alone, over 2,000 trainees were certified.

Despite the COVID19 situation, there is still a demand amongst teachers, SNAs & healthcare professionals to be trained in the administration of Buccal Midazolam or have their current certification refreshed and we are now offering this service online. 

Completion of the class will lead to a 1 year certification in the administration of Buccal Midazolam following the completion of a short online test. The class and test will be conducted by Epilepsy Ireland Training Manager, Paul Sharkey.

TIME: 10:00am - 12:30pm
DATE: Wednesday July 21st
COST: €35 per person attending (max class size of 20 people)
