In this educational initiative, experts in narcolepsy will address
the fundamental components of narcolepsy management:
clinical features, pathophysiology of the disorder, diagnosis, and treatment. In addition, a “hot topics” panel discussion of emerging guidelines (classifications of narcolepsy and potential implications) and challenges in diagnosis and management of narcolepsy in the pediatric population will be included. Significant time will
be allocated for addressing questions from attendees. A case study will be incorporated into the program, utilizing an interactive audience
response system (ARS). This system will provide faculty members with information on potential deficiencies in attendees’ knowledge and clinical practice, and enable
faculty members to explain appropriate patient management.
Upon completion of this program, attendees should be able to:
Explain the pathophysiology of narcolepsy based on
Recognize key elements for making an accurate
diagnosis of narcolepsy.
Identify changes to classification of narcolepsy from
Summarize nonpharmacologic and symptom-directed pharmacologic treatment in adults and evaluate
efficacy and safety profiles of therapies.
Describe the challenges of diagnosis and management of narcolepsy in the pediatric population.
