BRPT/SHMR Webinar
More than 960 BRPT credential holders participated in last week's free BRPT/Sleep Health Management Resources (SHMR) webinar entitled How Is Your Child Sleeping? And, more than 90% of participants said the information was relevant and useful to their profession. The comments received following the course were excellent! Here's what some of you had to say:

  • This was an excellent and important review that should be seen and analyzed not just by health care professionals but the general population as well; very interesting.
  • Thanks again for yet another useful topic! These free continuing education opportunities are helpful considering limited department budgets throughout the country.
  • Thanks for giving us access to the notes. This will be a great reference for our department discussions and patient education.
  • Great information. Thanks!

A special thanks to the terrific SHMR team for making this webinar series such a success!
