Program launch date: March 2020
The impact of migraine on quality of life and work-related activity is substantial but underestimated. However, migraine burden is difficult to assess both quantitatively and qualitatively due to the transient nature of migraine headaches and patient-reporting inconsistencies. The fact that headache disorders account for over 60% of neurological conditions and, according to recent analysis using disease-specific measures, reported in the Global Burden of Disease study, disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) run into the millions, suggests that there is a significant gap between knowledge and practice.

This new expert-led curriculum-based program covers the latest advances in migraine classification and acute management and will help you translate this knowledge into your clinical practice and improve your patients’ outcomes. The content has been published in phases, following a predetermined curriculum of learning activities which develop from the first stage, knowledge, moving onto competence and finally ending with performance.

The program is suitable for healthcare professionals worldwide who provide front-line care of patients with acute migraine, particularly primary care practitioners, internists and clinicians without a specialty in headache. It will also reinforce the existing knowledge of headache specialists.

Uwe Reuter discusses how to assess the efficacy of migraine treatment and when to change treatment plans.
