The National Coordinating Center for Epilepsy conducted a needs assessment that identified gaps in epilepsy knowledge and confidence around caring for children and youth with epilepsy (CYE) among health care professionals. The Strengthen & Enhance Epilepsy Knowledge Training was developed as a resource to help build knowledge, capacity, and expertise and initiate discussion among those who care for CYE.

These trainings are free, ready-to-use epilepsy trainings that can serve as teaching tools for medical residents, school nurses, social workers, community health workers, public health professionals, and all other health professionals and individuals seeking to increase their knowledge and expertise regarding epilepsy care for CYE. Trainings can be self-guided or viewed in groups as part of a Lunch & Learn and can utilize the case studies to initiate discussion. Each of the four trainings include:

  • A 20-30 minute pre-recorded webinar
  • A PDF PowerPoint presentation
  • A case study
  • A post-training evaluation with a certificate of completion
