Competencies in Sleep Medicine provides the knowledge and curriculum needed for a Sleep Medicine Training Program. The approach is consistent with the goals of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), which asks programs to develop specific and targeted approaches to each program that covers the material presented in the Training Program. Authored by leaders in the field, each chapter focuses on an area of knowledge and skills in sleep medicine and offers appropriate examples of instruction and assessment. These principles and protocols for training can be used by a program to address weaknesses, assess trainees in a standardized fashion, and provide additional measurable benchmarks. Those who judge trainee progress and achievement will find Competencies in Sleep Medicine to be the standard resource for defining and achieving student learning outcomes, while encouraging autonomous learning.

Covering all aspects of patient-centered care in the practice of physical medicine and rehabilitation, the book provides a competency-based approach to topics and conditions commonly encountered in this specialty. Thoughtfully organized chapters offer easy-to-access clinical content for all major practice areas, and the bookís competency-based goals and objectives also serve as a clear platform for educating physiatrists in training during their clinical rotations.

In the second part, experts in the field apply these core competencies to the management of common conditions including stroke, spinal cord and brain injury, amputation and prosthetics, musculoskeletal disorders, multiple sclerosis, and much more. Each of these chapters identifies goals and objectives for each competency and concludes with a representative case study and self-assessment questions with answers and explanations. The book also provides references to key articles and links to internet-based educational materials. Practical tips, how-to and where-to guides, key points, tables, and charts also help to maintain current knowledge and competency in the many areas that comprise the field of PM&R.
