Mark your calendar for Seizure Action Plan Awareness Week

Seizure Action Plan Awareness Week is February 13 to 20, 2023. This awareness campaign was developed and is managed by the Seizure Action Plan Coalition.

What is a Seizure Action Plan

A Seizure Action Plan (SAP) contains tailored guidelines on how to respond during a seizure, based on the patient’s medical history. It includes health and medical information specific to the patient and helps others recognize seizures and the appropriate steps to take to keep him or her safe from injury or damage caused by prolonged seizures.
