Class Experience

Students will learn:
What a seizure really is
The difference between seizures and epilepsy
Symptoms and Signs of Epilepsy 
Overview of what it takes to manage epilepsy
I am a family doctor with heavy experience in Paediatrics. I've treated numerous patients with seizures, from one time febrile seizures to all types of seizure disorders. I've spent time assigned specifically to the neurology outpatient clinic and so have dealt with patients who have well controlled disorders as well as those with intractable seizures. Most of all I've had the honour of seeing those with epileptic disorders thrive along with the character building experience of supporting the families which can often bear a heavy load as caretaker. I have good knowledge and reflection upon these pathologies and I am happy to help others understand in the simplest way I can.  
50 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
Although some seizures can be traumatic to see, this class will not include any graphic material or descriptions.
