Epilepsy Blog Relay: Global Epilepsy Training

Global Impact

This February, I had the honor of presenting as part of the EPILEPSY ASSESSMENT & MANAGEMENT COURSE (EAMC), which is offered by Pretola Health and Consulting and led by its founder, Tolu Olaniyan, Bsc, LD Nursing, MSc, Epilepsy.

I presented alongside other leaders in the patient engagement space such as Torie Robinson, and Nina Mago.

Free to Participants

Thanks to the course sponsors ROW Foundation and TSC Alliance, more than 500 participants of the EAMC will be trained on epilepsy for free.

This three-month virtual global epilepsy training supports doctors and nurses in Low to Middle Income Countries (LMICs) looking to stay abreast of latest research in epilepsy management and improve their patients’ outcomes.

This fourth edition of the EAMC offers a truly multidisciplinary approach to epilepsy management, featuring specialist sessions on how to assess and manage Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) and Epilepsy in Children.


Meaningful to a Global Audience

The course content is highly engaging and tailored to reflect the clinical, cultural, and socio-economic contexts in LMICs. Participants from previous editions of the EAMC have benefited from opportunity to network with other participants and share best practice when caring for people with epilepsy. In fact one participant noted, “it’s a helpful one as a medical doctor to know what I could change in my approach to patients, how important [it is] for them to provide even those sensitive information [such as seizure risks] and to encourage them to join support groups. And I think clinicians need capacity building in communication skills and psychiatric management.”
