Statement of Need

The impact of residual excessive sleepiness (ES) in patients undergoing treatment for narcolepsy and OSA is profound, which highlights treatment challenges in their management. Optimal management of residual ES involves clinicians understanding the efficacy of current and emerging treatment strategies and the importance of shared decision-making tools and strategies.

In this CME Outfitters decision-tree medical simulation, expert faculty focus on residual ES in patients with OSA and narcolepsy with patient case simulations that explore the complexity of managing residual ES and provides the latest clinical updates on current and emerging therapies, strategies to facilitate patient engagement, and shared decision-making to develop comprehensive treatment strategies for long-term, effective management.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate the efficacy of current and emerging treatment strategies that minimize the incidence of persistent excessive sleepiness in patients with OSA despite being optimally managed with CPAP.
  • Incorporate the use of shared decision-making tools and strategies to facilitate patient engagement in disease management.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Evaluate the efficacy of current and emerging treatment strategies that minimize the incidence of persistent excessive sleepiness in patients with OSA despite being optimally managed with CPAP.
  • Describe shared decision-making tools and strategies to facilitate patient engagement in disease management.
