Restoring the Balance: Recognizing and Addressing Disrupted Sleep-Wake Cycles in Narcolepsy

Provider: Paradigm Medical Communications, LLC in collaboration with Wake Up Narcolepsy (WUN)

This activity is supported by an educational grant from Avadel.  

Released: 12/18/2023 Expires: 12/18/2024 Earn up to 1.0 Credit Time to complete activity: 1.0 hour

Faculty: Clete A. Kushida, MD, PhD & Kiran Maski, MD, MPH

Target Audience: This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of sleep medicine specialists, including neurologists, psychiatrists, and pulmonologists. It may also benefit other clinicians who treat and/or manage patients with narcolepsy, such as primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, and PAs.

Program Overview: Narcolepsy is a high-burden sleep disorder marked by heterogeneous presentations that can be subtle and difficult to detect. In addition, many treatments are insufficient to address the range of narcolepsy symptoms, and/or their benefits are mitigated by adverse events or middle-of-the-night dosing schedules that are inconvenient, potentially dangerous, and exacerbate disrupted nighttime sleep, contributing to high levels of patient dissatisfaction with their care. Join our distinguished experts, Dr Kiran Maski and Dr Clete Kushida, as they present data and case studies to clarify the path to narcolepsy diagnosis and appropriate treatment, featuring novel therapies that address unmet needs.
