Migraine is the most common headache requiring medical treatment. In the US it is estimated that there are 36 million migraine sufferers. Migraine is responsible for half of all neurological disability. It is believed that only half of those with migraine are ever diagnosed and even when they are their care is often inadequate. Effective migraine care includes pharmacological, nonpharmacological, behavioral, and procedural modalities. However, there are times when migraine or other primary headaches progress in the face of appropriate care. This program prepares the provider to recognize the perpetuating factors for primary headaches; distinguish which headaches require additional investigation; and develop a comprehensive plan that meets the patients’ needs.
• Explain primary and secondary headache epidemiology.
• Recognize the pattern of primary and secondary headaches.
• Identify and develop interventions for the common primary headache-perpetuating factors.
• Develop an effective treatment for primary headache management.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
