COVID-19 brought a lot of challenges but also the potential for innovative digital solutions. Join this exciting webinar that brings together a unique group of multidisciplinary experts spanning across sleep medicine, dental, and medical fields to study sleep and breathing.

In an interactive setting, a panel of experts will explore the impact of COVID-19 and the restrictions of lockdown upon sleep and sleep disorders, sleep-disordered breathing, bruxism, insomnia, and treatments of snoring.

This is a chance to develop knowledge across disciplines with presentations from dental sleep medicine, ENT, respiratory medicine, neurology and psychology. You'll hear from experts who adapted and changed their services over 2020. 

During this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the challenges within sleep medicine caused by COVID-19
  • Review of recent research advances and innovative solutions to dental and ENT practice
  • Foster collaboration across multidisciplinary teams to share sleep medicine knowledge
  • Understand UK patient pathways for assessment and treatment of snoring, sleep-disordered breathing, bruxism and other sleep disorders
