Welcome to the Epilepsy WA eLearning site
Epilepsy WA provides information, education and epilepsy support group opportunities across Western Australia. Around 26,000 people in WA are currently living with a diagnosis of epilepsy. Epilepsy WA works tirelessly to raise awareness of epilepsy, to reduce stigma and to educate the community about this common neurological condition.
Much misunderstanding still exists around epilepsy and we are determined to change this. Epilepsy WA has launched this e-learning site to share knowledge about epilepsy and to educate the community, at home, at school and in the workplace.
Through these education and training program's we can develop the capacity of individuals, families, educational institutions, organisations and the community to better understand and support the needs of a person living with epilepsy. Epilepsy WA believes no one should go it alone with their epilepsy.
Epilepsy WA (Epilepsy Association of WA) was established by Ruby Hutchinson MLC in 1963.
The organisation was originally known as the West Australian Epilepsy Association. For over 50 years, we have been unwavering in our mission to improve the lives of those living with epilepsy in WA.
Conveniently located at the Centre for Neurological Support (The Niche), adjacent to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Nedlands, Epilepsy WA offers a network of support groups, information regarding epilepsy, assistive technologies, community education sessions, talks and seminars.
