Epilepsy and Driving

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 three-part ALM provides comprehensive education on the initial assessment, identification and management of epilepsy, as well as the management of complex cases of epilepsy involving specific needs, and includes a patient review exercise to support specialist referral.
