To better understand the complex issues associated with narcolepsy and its impact on patients, Narcolepsy Link invites sleep professionals to attend a live satellite broadcast featuring renowned narcolepsy experts Dr Thomas Roth and Dr Jonathan Schwartz.

Designed for sleep specialists, neurologists, pulmonologists, psychiatrists, and primary care physicians who may have patients with narcolepsy, this program will offer expert insights on recognizing, screening, and diagnosing patients with narcolepsy, followed by a question and answer session. Sponsored by Jazz Pharmaceuticals, space is limited, and advance registration is required.

Two live broadcasts will be held January 24, 2013 at 7 pm EST and 9 pm EST.

Program objectives include the following:
• Develop a critical understanding of the multiple factors that affect symptom presentation in patients with narcolepsy.
• Describe the pathophysiology of narcolepsy and integrate basic pathophysiologic concepts with clinical reasoning and decision-making.
• Describe the neurobiologic links among the symptoms of narcolepsy, including excessive daytime sleepiness, cataplexy, and disturbed nocturnal sleep.
• Discuss incorporating clinical best practices, including interview skills and screening tools, into clinical practice to improve recognition, screening, and diagnosis of patients with narcolepsy.
