The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives. We continuously strive to establish the Epilepsy Foundation as the leader in information and education, advocacy, research, and services to people with epilepsy and seizures, both digitally and in communities across the country.
The Epilepsy Learning Portal is your one-stop shop to access the Epilepsy Foundation’s online and on-demand trainings about epilepsy and seizures. With this resource, professionals, people with epilepsy, their caregivers, and the general public can learn more about epilepsy, seizures, and seizure first aid. The more people learn and gain skills about epilepsy and seizures, the more confident we can be that people living with epilepsy will be surrounded by caregivers and professionals that understand how to respond to their seizures.
The Epilepsy Learning Portal provides a centralized source for information and education. The Foundation can ensure consistency in the delivery of the materials from course curriculum to the evaluation of the various trainings.
The Epilepsy Learning Portal is the Foundation's learning management system (LMS). It is a web-based application that allows us to provide professional education opportunities and training for people living with seizures, their caregivers, and professionals with informational content and educational resources. It is a convenient, effective, responsive, reliable way for partner experts and the Epilepsy Foundation to create, deliver, and manage their program content, as well as monitor participation and evaluate program outcomes.
