Topic(s): Child Neurology and Developmental Neurology
Director(s): Marc Patterson MD, FAAN, FRACP
Description: Headache is one of the most frequent presenting complaints in neurologic and general pediatric practice. The physiological basis of headache is becoming better understood in line with advances in genomics. In parallel, the natural history of childhood headache, particularly chronic headache, is better defined. A broad range of treatment options are now available for children afflicted with headache and will be reviewed. Traumatic brain injury and concussion is increasingly recognized as a significant cause of disability in children and adults. The current understanding of these disorders and their management will be reviewed. This program complements C65: Child Neurology I: Pediatric Stroke, MS/Autoimmune, and C80: Child Neurology II: Epilepsy and Neuromuscular, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to diagnose and classify common and less frequent headaches and devise an effective management strategy. They should also be familiar with the current understanding of traumatic brain injury and concussion and be comfortable managing these disorders in children and adolescents.
