Millions of Americans suffer from sleep disorders that affect their health, daily functioning, and longevity. Although these patients are in our health care system, many continue to be undiagnosed or untreated.
There are over 100 unique sleep disorders identified; they can affect falling and staying asleep (insomnia), staying awake (excessive daytime sleepiness), sticking to a regular sleep schedule (sleep rhythm problem), and unusual behaviors during sleep (sleep-disruptive behaviors). Our health care providers may lack the knowledge of the latest clinical advances, management and treatment options for sleep disorders. It is important to provide educational resources that inform medical professionals about these diseases and the multidisciplinary approach to treating these patients. This one-day seminar is designed to provide health care providers with knowledge of sleep disorder pathophysiology and its connection to the prevalence and treatment modalities with the goal of improving the health status of their patients.
