Essay from the year 2014 in the subject Biology - Diseases, Health, Nutrition, grade: 82%, Sheffield Hallam University, course: Adult Nursing, language: English, abstract: According to census estimates, one in 103 of the UK population have epilepsy and it is usually misdiagnosed in 20-31% of cases. Sisodiya & Sander (2004) suggest that with an optimal treatment routine 70% of the population could become seizure free. However, the reality is less encouraging since Moran et al (2004) found that only 52% of people with epilepsy were living without seizures. This reflection considers my experience in caring for a service user with learning disability (LD) and suffers from epilepsy. Furthermore, it will focus on the bio-medical aspects of epilepsy and how it has affected my service user and the treatment available. In addition, it will explore the meaning of quality of life and the psychological factors experienced by the service user in their daily life. Names of individuals have been changed to adhere to confidentiality, NMC (2008).
