Migraine is 3 times more common in women than in men, and nearly 40% of all women experience migraine during their reproductive life cycle. Obstetricians and gynecologists are uniquely positioned not only to make a diagnosis and work with a patient to determine a treatment plan and lessen migraine-related disability, but also to be the reliable source of guidance for those patients who increasingly seek information and clinical care as their awareness of new treatment options for migraine increases.
Using case examples, this activity focuses on the role of hormones in migraine, fundamentals of migraine pathophysiology, diagnosis, a review of currently available therapies for migraine preventions and treatment, and practical considerations for therapy selection.
This activity is intended for health care professionals engaged in the care of patients with migraine.
Identify gaps in the quality of care provided to patients with migraine, the impact on patient quality of life, and opportunities to improve outcomes
Summarize the efficacy, adverse effects, and adherence challenges of older or nonspecifically targeted migraine therapies
Using efficacy and tolerability data from clinical trials, choose new migraine-specific, selectively targeted therapies for migraine prevention and treatment for appropriate patients
