6 CPD points have been awarded by the Royal College of Physicians.
Modern lifestyle has resulted in a significant increase in patients reporting symptoms of hypersomnia and insomnia. The association of obesity with obstructive sleep apnoea and sleep-disordered breathing further emphasizes the importance of sleep medicine to public health.
However, sleep disorders remain under-recognised by the medical community, which is largely due to the failure to question patients about their sleep quality and related symptoms.
This international conference on sleep disorders will review the latest evidence for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with sleep disorders, including obstructive sleep apnoea, hypersomnia, parasomnia and insomnia.
The conference includes multi-disciplinary approaches to the management of patients with sleep disorders and advances in the management of patients with sleep disorders, with an update on recent clinical trials. Workshops are included for allied healthcare professions focused on CPAP therapy and difficult scoring of polysomnography.
