Reducing Risk Of Epilepsy Related Harm

At Epilepsy WA we are passionate about helping the community to better understand the risks associated with epilepsy, and the risk reduction strategies that exist, to help empower people in our community to reduce their risk of epilepsy related harm.  Sometimes simple steps can help prevent injury or even save a life. This document outlines the steps you can take to reduce risk on a daily basis.


Our Nurse and Compassionate Ear Volunteer are available to talk through the document if you require assistance or support.
