  • Overview

    This program aims to provide healthcare professionals (HCPs) with a comprehensive, evidence-based curriculum in caring for individuals with Narcolepsy. This curriculum addresses unmet clinical needs, including improving the accuracy and timing of diagnosing Narcolepsy, understanding how Narcolepsy increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, and addressing how treating Narcolepsy can improve sleep, which is an important aspect of overall health. The main goal is to educate clinicians about the latest developments in this field in order to positively impact clinical practice and significantly improve the quality of life for individuals affected by Narcolepsy.

    This program covers best practices in:

    • Recognizing the symptoms of Narcolepsy, including the common ones and those that are less well-known
    • Exploring the relationship between cardiovascular disease and Narcolepsy
    • Addressing diagnosis and treatment of Narcolepsy in relation to the AHA Life Essential 8, which focuses on key aspects of a healthy lifestyle
  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interdisciplinary team, which includes Neurologists and Pulmonologists, as well as other healthcare providers involved in managing patients with Narcolepsy and other related disorders.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to: 

    • Improve the accuracy and timing when diagnosing patients suffering from Narcolepsy
    • Educate HCPs on how Narcolepsy increases cardiovascular risk
