Epilepsy Management Plans

Epilepsy Management Plan (EMP)

An Epilepsy Management Plan is a risk management tool that lets anyone, who has a person with epilepsy in their care, know what to do and what not to do when that person has a seizure.

Epilepsy Management Plans are often required by schools, pre-schools, child care centres, disability support services and sporting or social clubs. Plans help staff recognise seizure activity and provide documented procedures to follow should an emergency arise.

An Epilepsy Management Plan (EMP) is a document that you can develop with others involved in your life and care. It describes:

An EMP is a great way of ensuring that all the people in your life understand your epilepsy and how you want to be supported. The plan must be endorsed by your doctor. It’s important to update your plan at least once a year, or earlier if anything related to your epilepsy and treatment changes.
