Sleep Scoring Bootcamp (2 day course)

This two day course is an intensive introduction to the analysis of adult sleep studies and is designed for sleep technologists who have very little scoring experience. Technicians who are contemplating or starting the transition to sleep scoring would benefit most from this course. We have also found that people who have been scoring for a while also significantly benefit, as do training physicians who will be reporting sleep studies.

The course will include lectures and extensive practical sessions to familiarize attendees with the current AASM scoring guidelines and the application of these. All tutors are familiar with several sleep recording systems.

Participants are assumed to be working in the sleep medicine field, have at least a rudimentary knowledge of the signals in polysomnography and basic computing knowledge.

This course can be undertaken as a standalone course or as a follow up to the Fundamentals of Sleep Medicine short course. The Masters /Graduate Diploma Courses in Sleep Medicine are also available, which are all offered through the University of Sydney.

This course will be run twice in 2018: 5th & 6th April 2018; 27th & 28th September.

This course has been granted 14 Continuing Education Credits (CEC's) by the Australasian Sleep Technologists Association (ASTA) which can be used by those with the RPSGT qualification.

Lecturers: Kerri Melehan, RPSGT, PhD; Mark Norman, PhD.

PLEASE NOTE: We have run this course 2-3 times per year, and will continue to do so, depending on demand.

The programme is available here.

While we provide a certificate of attendance, this course does not qualify you to score sleep studies, as no Australian sleep scoring qualification exists.
