Take Charge of Your Airway Practice Creating the Practice that is Right For You

August 14, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

Making the commitment to incorporate airway and sleep in your practice will soon become an obligation not a choice.

It will involve identification of patients in need: screening, diagnosis, testing, treating, collaboration and referral. You will also need team members for education, administration, clinical support, communication, finance and follow up. Do you do it yourself or use one of the effective turn-key solutions? This webinar will provide information on how to determine what is right for you – now – and – in the future – as your airway practice grows. Pat will also discuss continuing care for airway patients and how treatment may really begin with sleep appliance and the important issue of access for all. She will be an important participant in the Roundtable and Pediatric Sleep hosted at ADA headquarters later this month.
