More about this course

This Epilepsy Awareness and Administration of Buccal Midazolam course certificate lasts 2 years as per recommendation by the Joint Epilepsy Council. 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.

This is an online course where you need to understand the subject but do not need a practical face to face course. The same subjects are covered as the classroom course and we can offer a short practical module for those wanting to take the course in a blended format.

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. The manual we use has been provided by the JEC from the following website: www.jointepilepsycouncil.org.uk

This course comes with 3.0 hours of CPD, although the time to complete the course online may be less than this. Total course time includes 2 hours and 43 minutes of video training as well as knowledge reviews, final test, remedial help and reviewing downloaded material.

The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.
