University and other Education Lectures are generally around 1 hour and focus on what it is like to live with epilepsy, how this can be a challenge beyond ‘just’ seizures and how that experience has shaped him personally.
Typically these sessions are aimed at students in Nursing/Healthcare and related fields such as Pharmacology.
Public and Patient Involvement is generally for studies, in a University setting, which are focussed on an area where people with epilepsy are the end user of a service, product or study. Simon specialises in shaping planned or ongoing research to ensure the needs of people with epilepsy are catered for and that the language used is sensitive and understandable (lay).
Business consultations are for businesses who have a product to offer to the epilepsy community, such as wearable technology. Generally this is centred around the needs of people with epilepsy and how tech may or may not be useful.
Epilepsy Awareness Talks are generally for groups who require awareness and first aid education. This generally happens in a University, school or workplace setting when someone has been diagnosed with epilepsy and there is a need for those around them to understand how this might affect them and how they should react to keep the patient safe whilst providing for their needs.
