risk assessment templates for people with epilepsy
Epilepsy affects people differently. People who have their seizures controlled with medication may not face any particular risks to their safety. The risks to safety from having seizures will depend on the person’s type of seizures; what happens to them during a seizure; and how they feels afterwards. Some people may not want to put safety measures in place, however it can be important to get a balance between making situations safer and freedom of choice.
Our epilepsy risk assessment templates can be used by individuals with epilepsy, who may choose to share them with the health and social care professionals involved in managing their care, where appropriate. The templates make suggestions about what the risks may be because of someone’s seizures, risks associated with living conditions (around the home), and risks associated with activities outside the home. Each individual may want to add their own ideas about risks and what would be helpful for them.
