GOAL STATEMENT

This 60-minute CME activity features an expert faculty panel comprised of two sleep experts, a cardiologist and a dietitian, that will engage in an interactive discussion about current evidence-based insights to manage people with narcolepsy - cataplexy (type I) using a combination of medications and behavioral interventions to reduce the likelihood of stroke, myocardial infarction, heart failure and cardiac arrest in this vulnerable population. After examining the latest evidence and data surround emerging agents, the faculty will provide expert recommendations for the management of several patient scenarios, emphasizing strategies to address current gaps in the management of narcolepsy and discuss the place of novel, emerging agents in the treatment algorithm.
