About the course
This week-long course runs annually and is suitable for health professionals.
Sleep medicine as a specialty has burgeoned in the last 20 years, yet remains a relatively young discipline within the field of healthcare.
Sleep has relevance over a wide range of other specialties including respiratory medicine, cardiology and neurology, and impacts significantly on public health aspects such as driving, work performance and hypertension.
To be able to effectively practice in this area, it is important to have a solid grasp of the basics underlying adult sleep medicine. This course aims to provide a grounding in sleep technology and the science behind the diagnosis and management of more common adult sleep disorders.
The Edinburgh Sleep Medicine Course is endorsed by the European Sleep Research Society (ESRS).
This course is run through Sleep Consultancy Ltd.
