Online Buccal Midazolam administration & Epilepsy Awareness sessions for Parents/Carers

We are pleased to officially confirm that we are now offering free online demonstrations for parents & carers of children with epilepsy on "Epilepsy Awareness & the Administration of Buccal Midazolam".

Buccal Midazolam is a rescue medication which has become more widespread in recent years which can be very important for people with epilepsy. It is administered during a seizure under medical advice and helps to reduce seizure duration and aid with safety. Given promptly, this relatively simple procedure can prevent major disruption to daily life resulting from hospital emergency treatment.

We are aware that despite the current situation, there is still a demand and concern amongst parents & carers to be shown/ reminded of the administration of Buccal Midazolam especially with the current pressure on hospital staff. The online demonstration will be conducted by Epilepsy Ireland Training Manager, Paul Sharkey.

For full details on booking a session contact  with “Epilepsy Awareness & the Administration of Buccal Midazolam” in the subject line along with your name and contact details. Paul will then contact you with further details and set up the online session and send on the relevant log in details.

We look forward to our services returning to normal as soon as possible however, we are pleased to be offering this demonstration in the interim in order to continue our work on the behalf of people with epilepsy and their families.
