The Epilepsy Nurses Association (ESNA) has launched best practice training guidelines for carers administering buccal midazolam for epilepsy patients in the community.
To support the implementation of the guidelines, our team have created an online assessment tool to ensure best practice is maintained in social care organisations when administering buccal midazolam.
Our assessment is suitable for staff providing care or support to individuals with epilepsy who have already completed face-to-face training and need to demonstrate they have absorbed the required knowledge to provide a high quality service.
Please note, this is an assessment not a training course. ESNA strongly recommend that training is carried out by a qualified face-to-face trainer before carrying out this assessment.
There are two versions of this assessment. One for users who are expected to administer Buccal Midazolam as part of their role and one for those who are not required to administer this medication. During set up you will be asked which version of the assessment you would like to complete. If you are not clear which version of the assessment you should take, please ask your manager before proceeding to purchase.
Please be aware that once you have purchased the assessment, a member of our team will be in touch with you within one working day. They will confirm the details required to set users up with the assessment. We will require first name, surname and email address for each individual who is undertaking the assessment to process your order.
If you have a technical question regarding set up or payment please contact Virtual College on (0)1943 605 976. Please note this team will not be able to advise you on the epilepsy guidelines or what these mean for your workforce. To discuss the guidelines, please contact ESNA via their website in the first instance https://www.esna-online.org.uk/.
