Statement of Need

Migraine is a debilitating condition with profound effects on individuals’ quality of life, accounting for five to nine million primary care visits each year. It is estimated that 38% of sufferers could benefit from preventative treatment, but few are currently using them nor are their healthcare providers discussing these options with them. Consequently, there is great interest in emerging data about calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) agents as novel options for migraine prevention and the benefits they may provide to patients.

In this CME Outfitters recorded symposium, expert faculty discuss the evidence for new agents, share strategies to address migraine prophylaxis, and translate evidence to real-world clinical practice utilizing case-based learning, which will optimize changes in practice for healthcare providers.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Apply knowledge of clinical features, symptoms, and key diagnostic criteria in the differential diagnosis of migraine.
  • Assess safety and efficacy data supporting the role of agents that target CGRP in the prevention and management of migraine.
  • Employ a patient-centered approach to the care of patients with migraine in order to improve outcomes, patient satisfaction, and treatment adherence.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Identify clinical features, symptoms, and key diagnostic criteria in the differential diagnosis of migraine.
  • Explain safety and efficacy data supporting the role of agents that target CGRP in the prevention and management of migraine.
  • Describe a patient-centered approach to the care of patients with migraine in order to improve outcomes, patient satisfaction, and treatment adherence.
