Migraine impacts approximately 1 in 7 Americans annually and accounts for between 5 and 9 million primary care office visits per year in the United States. Recently, new treatments have emerged, greatly expanding the current landscape of migraine management and bolstering the clinician’s toolbox. Join expert faculty in this Virtual Expert Roundtable as they discuss new advances in the management of migraine and answer your questions about how and when to incorporate these new therapies into treatment.
Migraine headaches are expensive: in lost work, productivity but most importantly your patients’ quality of life. As prescribers, we have a lot of options to offer. A review of the latest guidelines, best practices and common approaches to treatment will be discussed.
Headache is one of the most common reasons for patients to visit primary care providers. Most patients can be well cared for in this setting, without the need for a specialty consultation. In this talk, the faculty will discuss lifestyle modification, complementary and alternative treatments, and both acute and preventive pharmacotherapy for primary headache disorders, including migraine and tension-type headache.
Migraine treatment has a new and more powerful focus due to recently approved therapies that target migraine’s underlying pathophysiologic pathways. This online activity includes a discussion between a PCP and headache specialist about clinical best practices in the treatment of migraine and safety/efficacy of acute and preventive therapies.
