Migraine In Motion: Treatment Advances in Management and Prevention

Description

Migraine treatment has a new and more powerful focus due to recently approved therapies that target migraine’s underlying pathophysiologic pathways. As primary care providers are on the frontlines of caring for individuals with headaches, they are well positioned to identify those with migraine and those who may benefit from medical intervention. In this case-based session, attendees will learn about the underlying pathophysiologic mechanism, as well as safety and efficacy of new preventive therapies for episodic and chronic migraine.
