The Florida International Sleep School has appointed Robyn Woidtke to assist in the development and instruction of a new series of clinical education courses aimed at an increasing demand from health care providers dealing with sleep apnea patients.

The new education courses will train health care providers to better deal with the CPAP patient’s needs. The school was opened in 2007 and has been active in educating sleep technologists and physicians including newcomers into the field of polysomnography and sleep medicine. It specializes in distance learning opportunities with online courses and blended classroom sessions.

“I am looking forward to applying my past 25 years of experience in the sleep field to help develop new educational pathways that will assist with patient compliance,” said Woidtke. “Over the years, I have been constantly exposed to nurses and other health care providers who have no idea how to deal with these sleep apnea patients.”

In addition to adding a clinical sleep educator course, the school plans to expand its offering of on-demand Tech360 series of education modules. Each module will earn 1 BRPT CEU, providing students the opportunity to expand their knowledge base. The school also offers an A-STEP/STAR introduction to polysomnography course.
