I have mentioned that there are specific medicolegal requirements in the UK, but as a theoretical course, this should be OK. Delegates to be made aware that should they wish to practice this and provide advancement appliances in the UK they should further explore appropriate training in the UK (say from the British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine, who have an introductory program and guidelines as approved by UK medico-legal societies).
Multidisciplinary team approach and their roles.
