University of Sydney sleep scoring bootcamp (2 day course)
This two day course is an intensive introduction to the analysis of adult sleep studies and is designed for sleep technologists who have very little scoring experience. Technicians who are contemplating or starting the transition to sleep scoring would benefit most from this course. We have also found that people who have been scoring for a while also significantly benefit, as do trainee physicians who will be reporting sleep studies.
