Registration

Sleep disorders are common but unfortunately under diagnosed per the Institute of Medicine. The IOM report identifies one way to close this gap is in the form of CME activities for health care providers. This activity will serve as a sleep medicine conference for health providers from the state of Missouri and surrounding states to provide an activity for clinicians to gain expertise in more effectively diagnosing and treating common sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, insomnia, hypersomias, sleep related movement disorders, and circadian rhythm disorders. It will also allow for discussion and review of recent changes pertaining to the field of sleep medicine in regards to changes in requirements for accreditation by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine along with discussing other hot topics in the field of sleep medicine.
