SEC 2024 Medical Sleep Conference

The 2023 Sleep Education Consortium Conference focuses on the growing importance of addressing sleep disorders in order to provide a more comprehensive level of care. There is an unmet need resulting from a high prevalence of sleep disorders and a lack of education within our healthcare system. Most patients with sleep disorders go undiagnosed or mismanaged.

With sleep pathology now linked to other disease states, physicians need to get up to speed on how to properly identify and handle these patients. By the end of the conference, it will become clear how collaboration with dentists can enhance the overall health of patients.

Sleep issues don’t just start in adulthood. Often, the early stages of sleep pathology start during the pediatric years. What are the red flags and what are the current approaches to handling these issues? Frequently sleep issues can be found within entire families. This conference will cover it all and provide the tools needed to assist your patients, young and old:

  • We feature the latest in medical data presented by leading specialists within the nation.

  • We intend for you to be confident in your practice and collaborate with like-minded professionals.

  • We will build your confidence in recognizing sleep issues in patients within your practice.

  • We will teach you how to establish a differential diagnosis in a patient with a sleep complaint and how to move forward with an evaluation.

  • We will teach the different types of diagnostic tests done for evaluating patients and when to utilize home testing vs in-lab studies.

  • You will gain knowledge on conditions such as narcolepsy, insomnia, restless legs syndrome, obstructive sleep apnea, upper airway resistance syndrome, parasomnias and
    more.

  • We will gain knowledge on how sleep disorders can be an underlying, neglected, factor in patients with ADHD symptoms, with “cleaner” treatment approaches than relying on stimulant medications.

  • We will provide guidance on how to collaborate with other professionals in order to provide patients with the best possible comprehensive healthcare.

  • The conference will cover new, cutting-edge technologies for tracking the ongoing progress of patients with sleep disorders using remote patient monitoring as well as assessing sleepiness using computerized analysis of EEG data.

  • We will provide you with 24 continuing medical education credits.

  • We will offer you access to leading experts with Q&A sessions.

 

The conference will allow you to become familiar with many sleep problems, enabling you to be more responsive to questions patients may ask as you screen for sleep and airway disorders during regular exams.

The educational methods used over the course of the conference will include lectures, Q&A, and panel discussions.
