Epilepsy is an episodic, sometimes unpredictable condition that can often impair consciousness. Any medical condition that impairs a person’s capacity to drive has to be notified to the state or territory’s vehicle licensing body.
This module provides practical guidance in the management of epilepsy in patients with specific needs, such as children, adolescents and women planning pregnancy, as well as patients with stable epilepsy, and complex or refractory epilepsy.
This module will guide you through initial evaluation and investigation of suspected epilepsy, to facilitate early and effective specialist referral for confirmation of diagnosis and to initiate management.
