JurongHealth Campus' Continuing Medical Education (CME) programme was launched in 2011. Talks within the programme touch on a wide range of topics focused on different areas of patient management, which can be applied to the primary care setting. They are open to general practitioners, doctors working in community hospitals who provide intermediate and long-term care, Allied Health Professionals and nurses. Our CME programme provides a platform for the exchange of ideas on how to integrate care and achieve best possible outcomes for patients. In addition, our speakers will share about services available in JurongHealth Campus to facilitate the referral of patients from the primary care setting.

Management of Sleep Disordered Breathing - Dr Tan will briefly touch on the non-surgical treatment options for obstructive sleep apnoea, including CPAP, oral appliance, weight loss and positional therapy in her talk.

Restless Legs Syndrome - Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS), also known as Willis-Ekbom disease, is a common sleep-related movement disorder characterized by an overpowering urge to move the legs particularly in the evening. It can occur in up to 3% in prevalence in certain parts of the world, with increasing prevalence with advancing age. The pathophysiology of RLS is incompletely understood, although studies have identified a variety of central and peripheral nervous system abnormalities in patients with RLS.This talk will discuss the clinical features, diagnosis and management of RLS in adults.

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea(OSA) - She will cover in her talk the epidemiological and pathophysiological aspects of obstructive sleep apnoea(OSA) which is one of the most common sleep disorder worldwide.

Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation(HGNS) - Patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) are often prescribed continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) as a first-line treatment, but many struggle with achieving adequate adherence. A therapeutic option called hypoglossal nerve stimulation (HGNS) is a viable alternative for patients who are unable to use CPAP and unwilling to undergo typical soft tissue/skeletal surgery. An HGNS device called Inspire, which activates key airway muscles to maintain airway patency, has been implanted in over 40,000 patients worldwide since 2014 with good outcomes. We will discuss the device, eligibility criteria and implantation process to highlight a treatment method that you can discuss with your OSA patients

Sleep Deprivation and its short and long term consequences - Sleep is important for optimal performance and health. However, many people struggle to obtain a healthy amount of sleep. Laboratory studies and epidemiological studies show that sleep deficiency negatively affects cognition, mental health, and physical health. Here, I will summarize (1) the short-term impact of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, mood, and glucose regulation, and (2) how chronic exposure to sleep deficiency may increase risk for neuropsychiatric disease and diabetes.
