Bottom Line: The background and purpose of the HERMES (Harmonising Education in Respiratory Medicine for European Specialists) initiative has been discussed at length in previous articles [1-3].This article aims to provide more detailed and specific insight into the process and methodology of the Sleep HERMES Task Force in developing a core curriculum in respiratory sleep medicine.

ABSTRACT
The background and purpose of the HERMES (Harmonising Education in Respiratory Medicine for European Specialists) initiative has been discussed at length in previous articles [1-3]. This article aims to provide more detailed and specific insight into the process and methodology of the Sleep HERMES Task Force in developing a core curriculum in respiratory sleep medicine.

Figure 3: Implementation structure for harmonisation of training.

Mentions: The advantages of setting educational standards for postgraduate medical training at an international level must not be underestimated. Standards provide educators, practitioners, regulators and accreditors with a clear purpose to stimulate improvements, benchmark performance, assure minimum criteria and safeguard practice [25]. The HERMES model (fig. 3) offers a structure not only to develop a core curriculum for training but also establish key educational activities to support curriculum implementation. Current plans within the project's scope are to build an assessment framework, as well as specific assessment tools including an MCQ knowledge test and e-portfolio assessment. The e-portfolio project falls under the broader ERS educational initiative to develop an e-portfolio for members. Supporting documents, including toolkits for curriculum implementation and faculty-development courses are also being considered within the HERMES initiative. In presenting a common curriculum for medical and allied health professionals alike it is hoped that all those working in respiratory sleep medicine will feel equipped with the necessary skills to function as a team member and support changes in practice towards collaborative patient-centred care.Figure 3
