One out of six US adults suffer from migraines and yet, until recently, management has been reliant on treatments designed for other conditions that had some consequential success. Fortunately, this long-standing paradigm has not only ended but has accelerated in the opposite direction. The rapid acquisition of new therapies has created a near impossible amount of information to parse out efficiently. This curriculum is designed to help participants improve their migraine management skills by distilling what information is most relevant in the evolving world and what it means for patients.

The activity features an in-depth interview with a renowned headache specialist, Dr Shivang Joshi, regarding the appropriate application of recent advances in headache medicine. Throughout the activity, Dr Joshi reviews his own management approaches for a variety of scenarios relevant to modern practice as well as those of the other experts involved in this project.

    This discussion will be based on the group’s collective responses to the self-assessments in the self-study modules. The focus will be topics where the most heterogeneity between group members and/or divergence from group leaders’ recommendations is seen.

  • Live Group Discussion 2: Group Task Review

    This discussion will center around responses to the group tasks, emphasizing your own questions, points of uncertainty, and disagreements. It will allow for open dialogue surrounding strategic decision making in order to help guide useful ways of thinking when faced with carrying clinical scenarios.

Group Tasks

  • Managing Comorbidities
