ith narcolepsy, we're dedicated to improving awareness of this serious disorder and helping the sleep community tackle misunderstanding, misperceptions and misdiagnosis," said Bruce Cozadd, chairman and chief executive officer of Jazz Pharmaceuticals.

The company also supports a variety of patient and medical education initiatives to help improve awareness of narcolepsy, its diagnosis and treatment.  As part of SLEEP 2012, the 26th Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies (APSS) in Boston, Jazz Pharmaceuticals provided an educational grant for a continuing medical education roundtable titled "Optimizing Care for the Narcolepsy Patient," where experts discussed the clinical features and diagnosis of narcolepsy and challenges in patient care.

About AWAKEN
The AWAKEN Survey: Awareness and Knowledge of Narcolepsy is a national online survey commissioned by Jazz Pharmaceuticals and conducted by Harris Interactive in May 2012. The survey was conducted among 1,000 adults (general public, 18+), 300 primary care physicians (general practice, family practice and internal medicine) and 100 sleep specialists (neurologists, psychiatrists, pulmonologists and PCPs) to discern the level of public and physician knowledge of narcolepsy.  All physician respondents have practiced 2-30 years, spend at least 75% of their professional time in direct patient care and treat at least 50 patients per month for any condition. Sleep specialist respondents are neurologists, psychiatrists or pulmonologists who treat at least 30 patients a month for sleep disorders, or are primary care physicians who treat at least 30 patients a month for sleep disorders and are board-certified in sleep medicine.
