Royal Philips Electronics formally launched its Know How Webinars program, an online learning series for sleep therapy and home respiratory professionals. Know How Webinars are presented live by clinical researchers, physicians, respiratory therapists, or subject matter experts from Philips Respironics and then placed on the Know How Web site for on-demand viewing.

Know How Webinars cover three categories: business, clinical, and products and programs. Business webinars include topics such as reimbursement guidelines, cost-saving strategies, and appropriate equipment selection. Clinical sessions are designed for physicians, respiratory therapists, and sleep technologists, and topics include the latest findings on obstructive sleep apnea, the use of noninvasive and invasive ventilation, and trends in the use of home oxygen therapy. Product webinars comprise a review of the latest products and programs from Philips Respironics. All Know How Webinars are offered free of charge.

“At a time when the sleep and home respiratory industry is facing a number of challenges, this program is the latest example of ways that we are reaching out to provide information on critical business and clinical issues,” said John Frank, vice president and general manager, Home Respiratory Care, Philips Home Healthcare Solutions. “The online format of Know How Webinars enables us to share information in a way that is timely and relevant.”

The live Know How Webinars format includes a moderator, presenter, and a question-and-answer session that enables participants to interact with the presenter. On-demand, pre-recorded webinars are available at any time by registering at the Know How Webinars Web site. Sessions last approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
