Epilepsy Action Australia
Epilepsy Association trading as Epilepsy Action Australia is a company limited by guarantee which provides professional service delivery Australia wide.
Beginning in 1952 as a local association, Epilepsy Action Australia has developed into the largest provider of specialist epilepsy services in the community for people with epilepsy and other seizure disorders, their carers, families and the broader community.
The organisation has developed high level expertise and a rich base of epilepsy information, particularly vested in our Epilepsy Nurse Educators. Epilepsy Action Australia provides a range of services including patient and community education, seizure management planning, case management, emergency medication training, workshops and residential camps, as well as supporting a number of hospital based clinics. Services are delivered by phone, videoconference and internet, with a physical presence in most states and territories.
It is estimated that over 180,000 Australians are living with epilepsy and approximately 2% of Australians will experience the condition at some point in their lives. Up to 5% will experience a one-off or provoked seizure during their lifetime.
Epilepsy Action Australia has committed to delivering equitable and consistent services to all people in Australia, building services around health education and interventions that facilitate client self-management. For several years the organisation has been working on a National Service Strategy incorporating design of innovative services and delivery tools to facilitate the availability of comprehensive services across Australia, accessible to people with epilepsy, their families and carers, no matter where they live.
