Learners will be able to:
- Utilize the latest pathophysiological advances to improve the identification and classification of migraine
- Debate and adopt appropriately tailored acute migraine treatment to the individual patient to optimize safety, efficacy, and adherence
- Evaluate the latest data on novel acute treatments and discuss where their use may be incorporated into current clinical practice
- Interpret the success of acute migraine treatment using up-to-date clinical endpoints

This activity is supported by an educational grant from Lilly.
Through a variety of engaging learning techniques and content, the story of migraine unfolds as learners discover more about the pathophysiology and how better patient communication and accurate diagnosis will lead to best-practice management and treatment and help translate knowledge into practice. The webcast is available in multiple languages.
In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by North American Center for Continuing Medical Education (NACCME) and Springer Healthcare IME.
The program is certified with AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™; the amount of credits are listed below. Participants should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activities.
