This two-day training course is designed to provide a basic working knowledge of sleep medicine. It is designed for neurology Residents and Fellows from across Canada as well as at practicing community neurologists who are interested in a comprehensive understanding of the current principles and practices dealing with patients with sleep disorders. This comprehensive course may serve to fulfill part of the preparation requirements for trainees seeking to complete the Royal College Examinations in Neurology.
Many patients presenting to neurology either have primary sleep disorders or suffer from sleep comorbidity. Knowledge on the diagnosis, differential diagnostic considerations, and management of these disorders is therefore mandatory for the general neurologist.
This is a hybrid event. It will take place in-person and will be available virtually for those that cannot travel.
Day 1 of the National Training Course on Sleep Medicine will end in a Scientific Speed Dating event with expert faculty. This will be followed by a cocktail dinatoire. More details will follow shortly.
