The course covers different types of Epilepsy and Seizures and the medication using Buccal Midazolam. It also covers the side effects, effects, dose, record keeping and after treatment care.

Buccal Midazolam is an alternative treatment to rectal diazepam and works as a relaxant to assist in controlling certain types of seizures. We also offer Epilepsy Awareness and Administration of Rectal Diazepam course.

The Joint Epilepsy Council’s (JEC) guide on training standards for the administration of Buccal Midazolam state: 

“Assessment of Learning There are recognised difficulties associated with assessing the knowledge and skills of participants who undergo training in the administration of buccal midazolam. Most training providers will be unable to assess participants as they carry out this procedure in their day-to-day work, as this is a procedure used in an emergency which cannot be predicted. An employer organisation should consider assessment important and good practice recommends the following options are fulfilled as far as possible. 

During the course, a training provider checks that learning is taking place, supervising the participant in a simulated procedure using a volunteer with water as the medication. It is recommended that certificates of attendance should be issued when the trainer is fully satisfied that learning has taken place. Following the course a training provider or work-based assessor assesses the participants using the following: Questioning, oral or written Case studies Following the course, it is recommended that an employer arranges for the participant to observe the procedure carried out by a trained and experienced member of staff, and is supervised on at least the first occasion the procedure is used.” 

This means ProTrainings as a training provider deliver theoretical and practical training through simulation and demonstration (you will receive a certificate and have access to download a CPD credit time statement as additional evidence). Following training, you or another experienced qualified personnel will shadow the trainee and officially sign them as competent when they have administered midazolam in a real situation.
