People living with epilepsy usually have seizures at unpredictable times. Because epilepsy varies so much between individuals, it is crucial that everyone understands how to support the person - an EMP documents the person's seizure types, support needs and emergency procedures.
The person with epilepsy is an integral part of the development of the EMP.
