The Genesis SleepCare team supported partner organisation HeartCare Partners at their annual Cardiac Connections conference last weekend in Noosa. Cardiac Connections attracted over 70 general practitioners and emergency physicians who attended six workshops on various cardiology and sleep care topics.

Dr Justin Hundloe, Sleep & Respiratory Physician with Genesis SleepCare, was invited to lead the sleep care workshop along with Dr Amy Reynolds, who is currently completing her fellowship with Genesis SleepCare. Dr Hundloe and Dr Reynolds presented on the importance of CPAP compliance in patients with chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and introduced Genesis SleepCare’s Plan-Do-Study Activity (PDSA), a quality improvement activity with the RACGP developed to improve practice identification of patients at risk of obstructive sleep apnoea.
