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.
