Epilepsy Management Trainings

Many individuals with epilepsy do not have the opportunity to consult with neurologists and receive proper care. This is due to various factors such as a limited number of trained neurologists, cultural misconceptions about epilepsy, and inadequate access to clinical services. As a result, they often seek initial assessment and care from traditional healers or primary healthcare workers. To bridge this gap, integrating epilepsy services into primary healthcare is crucial. However, it requires training programs for non-specialist healthcare providers and the development of practical epilepsy management initiatives. CareEpilepsy Ethiopia has taken significant strides by training 200 nurses and health officers in effective epilepsy management.
