Thompson River University Multidisciplinary Sleep Conference 2011 March 18 to 20, 2011

In June 2009 an interdisciplinary group of professionals interested in sleep disorders met at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops BC, Canada. It was an interesting and productive meeting. In our discussions it became apparent that we needed to meet annually. It was also felt that the discussions needed to be opened up to a larger audience. It was the consensus of the group that a cooperative multidisciplinary approach would advance the practice of sleep medicine in British Columbia.

We wish to involve, Physicians from all medical specialties, Dentists, Respiratory Therapists, Polysomnographic Technologists, Nurses, Psychologists, Researchers, Students and anyone else interested in the study of sleep disorders. Manufacturers may also register and contact us about sponsoring a speaker.

Last year this meeting had just under 200 attendees. This year there are attendees from around the world including Asia and Africa. For more information go to the web site
