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.
