CCSH Workshop: AAST CCSH Designated Education Program Information 

AAST is excited to present a new CCSH education program that will first be available during the upcoming Annual Meeting.

Upon completion of the CCSH Workshop: AAST CCSH Designated Education Program full day program and receiving a passing score on the online post-test, RPSGT credential holders who have recertified at least once will be eligible for the CCSH credential, under a newly created pathway. Candidates must provide proof they passed the post-test with a greater than 70% score to receive a certificate of eligibility to apply to sit for the CCSH credentialing exam. The online exam will be made available 60 days after the workshop, on November 5, 2019 and will be open for 60 days to workshop attendees.

We anticipate the new BRPT pathway will be available shortly after the new education program is available online, taking into account the post-test window and allowing candidates who have completed the program an opportunity to take and pass the post-test and receive their certificate.

This all-day workshop is designed for health professionals who work directly with sleep medicine patients, families and other healthcare practitioners to coordinate and manage patient care and improve outcomes.

Topics covered will include:

  • Normal sleep and circadian rhythms
  • Evaluations of sleep disorders
  • Incidence and prevalence of sleep disorders
  • Clinical presentation of sleep disorders
  • Clinical evaluations
  • Patient follow up and management

The workshop also includes a supplemental workbook and additional online questions for all attendees.
