This two-evening health policy and advocacy conference will provide an outstanding overview of current issues related to pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. Presentation topics include:

  • perspectives on how health policy will likely change with the new administration; and
  • an overview of health care disparities in the management of sleep disorders and approaches to improve outcomes for at-risk groups

Updates to relevant topics that affect our patients and practices will be covered, including:

  • coding and reimbursement;
  • changes in oxygen access, delivery, technology, and patient education;
  • multisociety efforts to improve access to home mechanical ventilation, noninvasive ventilation, and other PAP therapies for OSA and complex patients; and
  • the current and future roles of telemedicine in the management of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine.

Presentations will be interactive and delivered in several formats, including expert panel discussions, multidisciplinary roundtable discussions, and interactive didactic lectures.

Both live sessions will be recorded, so if you are unable to attend either of them, the recordings will be made available in our learning management system for all registered learners for three months.
