About this event

  • Date and time Mon 4 May 2020 from 12:30pm to 1:30pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Sleep Medicine

Amid this critical period of the pandemic, all aspects of hospital care are hugely restricted. It is now more important than ever that telemedicine, remote monitoring of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and online digital health tools are understood and used to assess and treat insomnia.

Join experts in the field to understand common sleep problems and know how to diagnose and treat parasomnias without bringing patients into the hospital. 

This webinar is ideal for sleep specialists, all medical trainees, GPs, neurologists and psychiatrist.

All views expressed in this webinar are of the speakers themselves and not of the RSM.

Special rates for difficult times. 

The RSM wishes to offer healthcare professionals continued learning opportunities during the coronavirus pandemic. The RSM’s COVID-19 online events are available free of charge, while there will be small charges to register for other online education.
