Austin, Texas (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Med Learning Group is pleased to announce their upcoming Continuing Medical Education (CME) webinar titled, “Counting Sheep: Managing Sleep Disorders in the Primary Care Setting.” The Primary Care CME webinar is designed to meet the educational needs of primary care physicians, other healthcare professionals who diagnose and treat patients with sleep disorders. The faculty members for this Primary Care CME webinar are Dr. Sanford H. Auerbach (Boston Medical Center), Dr. Karl Doghramji (Thomas Jefferson University), and Dr. David Neubauer (Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center).
Sleep disorders are highly prevalent in society today and are often inadequately treated, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. An estimated 70 million Americans experience sleep disorders, and direct medical costs associated with doctor visits, hospital services, prescriptions, and over-the-counter medications are estimated to be in the hundreds of billions of dollars each year.
Effective management and treatment of sleep disorders are often associated with distinct challenges for healthcare practitioners since there are noticeable gaps in clinical knowledge of neurobiology, epidemiology, comorbid conditions, adherence, and other aspects of successful treatment. All healthcare providers managing sleep disorders must have acute knowledge of how to recognize, diagnose and manage sleep problems due to their tendency toward chronicity and the association of sleep disorders with increased morbidity and poorer outcomes.
After completion of this Primary Care CME webinar, participants should be able to:
- Review the neurobiology of sleep disorders in order to improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients with sleep disorders;
- Identify comorbid conditions associated with sleep disorders in order to improve treatment of patients; and
- Develop individualized treatment plans for patients with sleep disorders by improving collaboration with other sleep professionals.
