Specific projects that we are currently involved include:

  • Curriculum development: we have produced a detailed syllabus that identifies the aspects of Sleep Medicine that trainees should be familiar with at each stage of their training.
  • Educational symposia: arranging Sleep Medicine symposia at Royal College Conferences.
  • CPD: the group is generating CPD modules and other educational resources for trainee, career grade and consultant psychiatrists.
  • Guidelines: developing guidelines on good practice for psychiatrists treating sleep disorders.
  • Collaboration: encouraging closer links with other Sleep Medicine organisations, particularly the British Sleep Society.
