As with all Sleep Scotland training, the Paediatric Sleep Study Day is available for commission. This is suitable for any team of Senior Health Professionals with an interest in paediatric sleep and who wish to train up to 50 members of staff. This will be the most cost-effective way of training a number of people and we would encourage you to invite other teams in your locality, where appropriate, to share the cost.
