Paediatric sleep disordered breathing encompasses a wide range of symptoms and clinical presentations and can be associated with potentially severe outcomes. Social determinants may influence the occurrence and treatment of OSA in children, and an understanding of these factors is needed to guide management. Identifying and integrating social factors that influence paediatric sleep disordered breathing and its health consequences may allow the development of more effective strategies for diagnosis and management and promote health equity for all children.

What is a webinar?

A webinar closely simulates a lecture-based teaching experience. The speaker can interact with the audience, just as in a classroom setting. During the webinar, you will be asked to share your opinion on issues related to the topic using interactive polls.
