Enhancing pre-registration education in epilepsy care

Hazel Powell Programme director, NHS Education for Scotland

Hazel Powell explains the role of NHS Education for Scotland in encouraging collaboration between specialist nurses and university lecturers

This article outlines an approach to enhancing the educational development and delivery of teaching about epilepsy care in pre-registration learning disability nursing programmes in Scotland. It describes how the involvement of epilepsy specialist learning disability nurses in the three-year programme has strengthened links between practice and education, and ensured that students’ learning outcomes are evidence based and up to date. The approach could be adopted in other fields of nursing and areas of clinical expertise.
