Needs Assessment: Assessing Knowledge and Performance Gaps in Excessive Daytime Sleepiness Secondary to Narcolepsy and Obstructive Sleep Apnea

In March of 2020, Efficient conducted a survey of 55 community neurologists to assess current practice patterns and knowledge of these physicians related to the assessment, diagnosis, and management of patients with excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) secondary to narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Additional focus was given to indications and knowledge of both traditional and novel agents to capture in depth information regarding modern use of therapies and overall treatment strategies. Results demonstrate substantial educational gaps in diagnosis and management of this patient population. This needs assessment is divided into the following sections: 

Section 1: Work-up and Differential Diagnosis
Section 2: Current Clinical Management
Section 3: Comfort Level with Sodium Oxybate
Section 4: Knowledge and Incorporation of Recently Approved Agents
Section 5: Emerging Agents
Section 6: Cardiac Comorbidities
