Advanced Course in Sleep Medicine for General Practitioners

In recent years, Sleep Medicine has become a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary medical discipline, essential in the diagnosis and therapy of sleep disorders. Currently, Competence in Sleep Medicine is established by the Portuguese Medical Association and can be achieved once a set of requirements approved by the National Council has been met. The knowledge of sleep, its mechanisms, its effects and its pathology has grown explosively in recent years; however, there is still an undervaluation of sleep-related manifestations, partly by patients, but also largely by the medical community. Thus, the approach to the patient with sleep pathology implies recognizing and valuing a set of complaints and manifestations, some of which are not always understood by the patient as a problem because they occur when he or she is asleep.

The high prevalence of the disease and the growing number of patients led us to propose a course mainly aimed at General Practitioners in order to provide them with the necessary knowledge for a better diagnosis, treatment, possible hospital referral and further follow-up of this type of patients.

We believe that due to the increasing possibilities to effectively treat sleep disorders and significantly reduce the health problems and mortality rates associated with these disorders, it is crucial to give due importance to sleep and its disorders. Taking into account that approximately one third of a person's life is spent in this state, this comprehensive course aims to highlight the importance of sleep and its disorders, providing fundamental knowledge to deal with them effectively.

We have structured and consolidated the program to achieve learning outcomes useful for medical practice in the primary health care setting. Therefore, the Advanced Course in Sleep Medicine for General Practice is composed of eight modules that address different aspects related to sleep and its medical implications. Each module is under the teaching responsibility of renowned experts in their respective fields, providing a comprehensive and integrated view of Sleep Medicine.

  Understand the importance and magnitude of the problem of sleep pathology in primary health care.
  Acquire knowledge of the physiological basis and chronobiological aspects of sleep for a better approach to sleep treatment.
