GILLETTE, WY – Dessie Hoxie, RPSGT, Sleep Disorders Clinic Coordinator at Campbell County Memorial, recently completed a Clinical Sleep Educator Certificate Program through the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT) in Nashville, TN.

A certificate as a Clinical Sleep Educator recognizes the importance of health care professionals who collaborate with physicians, patients, and families in the delivery of services and management of sleep disorders. A Clinical Sleep Educator will be the liaison and point of contact for patient issues, problems, and treatments. A certificate as a Clinical Sleep Educator emphasizes the important role of non-physician health care providers in successful disease management, community support, and the standard of care and education provided to patients and families.

The Clinical Sleep Educator is an assessment-based certificate. To receive an assessment-based certificate, the participant is required to document attendance or participation and demonstrate that the intended learning objectives and outcomes were achieved through a proficiency exam or assessment.

Dessie has worked in the Sleep Disorders Clinic for nine years, and is also a Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT).
