  • : Online

This free online learning module provides 15 clinical questions and immediate answers about an original peer-reviewed article written for GPs.

Relevance to General Practice

Key questions in diagnostic evaluation of patients presenting with a seizure include is it an epileptic seizure or a nonepileptic mimic and, if epileptic, what are its features? Few investigations provide conclusive diagnostic results, and assessment is largely clinical. The cause of the seizure and likelihood of recurrence are important considerations when deciding on management.

Learning outcomes
  • Differentiate seizure mimics, seizures and epilepsy
  • Investigate a patient with possible seizures
  • Advise a patient who has experienced a seizure about safety precautions
  • Respond when a patient with a recent seizure says they will not stop driving
