  • New ways to run clinical research in sleep medicine


In this webinar, Kimberly Sterling will explain how a more holistic view of patients based on Real-World Evidence (RWE) can benefit sleep apnoea therapy management. She’ll introduce a range of RWE examples collected from PAP patients and explain the benefits and challenges using this kind of data can bring. Jean-Louis Pépin delivers an outline of the results of the ALASKA project, an analysis of a total of 480,000 CPAP users in the French healthcare system. Plus, he explains findings around the effect of telemedicine/telemonitoring on PAP adherence. Anita Simonds walks through the current evolution of OSAHS guidelines and asks: can RWE and virtual pathways influence policy in the future?
