Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Headache
Director(s): Todd Rozen MD, FAAN
Description: Primary headache disorders are those that are not attributable to another underlying secondary condition like a vascular malformation or brain neoplasm. The most well recognized primary headache subtypes are migraine, cluster, and tension-type headache, but there are many more primary headache disorders listed in the International Headache Classification that neurologists should be aware of as they may encounter them in their clinical practice. This introductory course will focus on the primary headache syndromes and will delve into their epidemiology, clinical presentation, and treatment using case-based scenarios. The lectures in the present course will focus on migraine and tension-type headache, as well as lesser known primary headache conditions including hypnic headache, primary stabbing headache, and nummular headache. This program complements C52: Introduction to Primary Headache Disorders II: Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgias and Other Primary Headaches Including New Daily Persistent Headache, Cough, Exercise, and Primary Thunderclap Headaches, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with how to diagnose and treat various primary headache disorders and become familiar with the International Classification of Headache Disorders, 3rd edition (beta version), as well as updated evidence-based treatment guidelines for migraine and other primary headache disorders.
