This capstone unit of study will address the practical application of the knowledge gained from the previous units to provide the student with the skills that will form the basis of future professional practice. Students will become competent in the use of sleep scoring software to score and interpret a variety of shorter sleep study recordings in order to develop a working understanding of the polysomnographic features of clinical syndromes. This will culminate in scoring full sleep studies and demonstrate an ability to link the findings to the clinical syndromes. This unit includes a requirement to submit a literature review of a chosen topic and give a formal presentation of this work.
