Diagnosis and Patient Communication

Developing the most appropriate and effective treatment plan for people with migraine requires an early and accurate diagnosis. To achieve this, effective communication and a thorough understanding of the most up-to-date classification criteria are key.

Using scenario-based interactive learning, we take you through the most recent International Headache Society (IHS) classification criteria, screening methods, and verified communication techniques to support you in your daily clinical practice and effectively identify the different subtypes of migraine.

This activity was launched on November 12, 2020. The data were correct at time of publication, and no further updates have been made to the content.
