ACTIVITY AND CME INFORMATION

TARGET AUDIENCE

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

This activity is designed for headache specialists and primary care physicians. Other healthcare professionals who care for patients with headache may also benefit from participation in the educational activity.

 

Emerging therapies targeting new and diverse mechanisms of disease pathophysiology may be on the cusp of revolutionizing migraine treatment. Join expert faculty for this educational program as they detail advances in acute and preventive treatment of migraine and decode complexities of long-term headache management. Real-world cases will be presented from the patient’s point of view describing scenarios encountered in the clinic, with the complicating factors of treatment failures and comorbidities. Throughout the interactive program, we invite participants to comment, answer, and pose questions to faculty on individual iPads® in real-time.

 

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to

3. Effectively engage patients in the diagnosis of migraine or other primary headache disorder (eg, establishing goals, developing a plan, and considering modifications).

2. Develop optimal plans for acute and preventive treatment of migraine, including difficult patients (eg, circumstance of prior treatment failures, contraindications, or comorbidities).

1. Discuss the prevalence and burden of migraine.

4. Describe newly characterized mechanisms of migraine pathophysiology.

5. Analyze safety/efficacy profiles of new and emerging therapies for acute and preventive migraine treatment.
