Unit 2 highlights the importance of forensic awareness for workers in secure settings. Learners will also come to understand how assessing and managing risk in a forensic setting is vital for all concerned. This unit explains the reasons why people are detained, and the legal processes relating to the Mental Health Act and other court procedures.

Unit 3 explores the topics covered in Unit 2 in more detail using case studies and activities that provide learners with a better understanding of forensic issues, such as risk assessment and monitoring and assisting progress.

This unit goes on to explore the symptoms that service users might experience during a seizure because knowing what to expect is crucial for providing the support and reassurance they need.

Unit 3 enables learners to recognise the signs (if there are any) that a person is going to have a seizure, to identify possible triggers and to look at the importance of support plans in providing service users with the care they need. This unit also explains how to offer reassurance, protection and assistance to service users during and after an epileptic seizure and what to do in an emergency. Finally, the unit discusses other
related issues such as continuous and recurrent seizures.

Unit 4 informs learners how to access information easily about the wide range of medication available for people with epilepsy, as well as about the possible side-effects. It will also describe some of the other methods of treatment, such as vagus nerve stimulation. This unit also goes on to look at the implications epilepsy has on people in terms of their everyday and emotional lives. It also explains how and why the condition of epilepsy can cause death. Finally, the unit explains the records that need to be kept for service users and the importance of them being detailed and accurate.
