If You Are A Headache Practitioner Or Researcher

‚ÄčHeadache Cooperative of the Pacific

Migraine is the 2nd leading cause of years lived with disability worldwideand affects roughly 13% of the global population. It causes huge  direct and indirect cost to the health care system and to the individual with migraine.  Despite many advances that have been made in the understanding of migraine pathophysiology and new treatments that have become available, there are unmet needs for this condition. Individuals with migraine are more likely to seek help from their primary care provider than a neurologist or headache specialist. Because of this, the Headache Cooperative of the Pacific is going to Hawaii to provide a low-cost CME program for local primary care providers.  It is critical that primary care providers be aware of new & emerging acute and preventive treatment options that are migraine specific, well-tolerated, and potentially safer that prior treatment options.

Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Identify migraine and the neuroinflammatory peptides, including CGRP, that play a role in migraine pathogenesis
  • Be aware of new medications, both acute and preventive, that target CGRP in the management of migraine
  • Know how to incorporate new migraine-specific treatment options in the management of their migraine patients including special populations including those with cardiovascular issues
