This session looks at paroxysmal episodes that mimic epilepsy in children and when/where parents should go for further advice.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • List the symptoms of common conditions that may look like epileptic seizures but are not
  • Explain who can provide advice should a potentially epileptic event occur
  • Outline the action that may be taken if diagnosis of the condition is uncertain or suggests further investigation is required

This session uses self assessments that help you check what you have learnt. You do not have to use them and your answers are not seen by anyone else.
