Migraine: It Doesn’t Have To Be a Headache
Migraine is the most common headache requiring medical treatment. It is estimated that there are 37 million migraine sufferers in the US. Migraine is responsible for half of all neurological disability. It is believed that only half of those with migraine are ever diagnosed—and even when they are, their care is often inadequate. However, there are times when migraine or other primary headches progress in the face of appropriate care. This program prepares the provider to: recognize the clinical features of migraine, distinguish which headaches require additional investigation, and identify the components of a successful migraine plan. This program will also present a case study that will apply the principles of recognizing the clinical features of migraine, distinguishing which headaches require additional investigation, and identifying the components of a successful migraine plan.
