The target audience for this medical event is for all clinicians who treat chronic pain. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
You enter a room and your new patient tells you, “I’ve done everything!” Understandably, a patient may feel that way but it’s not true. They may have tried a lot but not everything. Well, when you’ve done everything, there is only one thing left to do, curse God and die. Marcus Aurelius said, “Everything that happens, happens for a reason.” This is crucial because if you don’t know how you “happened,” how are you going to know what to do? This presentation prepares providers to know how refractory migraine “happens” and how to treat it with aggressive pharmacological, behavioral, and interventional modalities.
