Description: The Comprehensive Migraine Education Program (CMEP) was developed by the American Headache Society. The CMEP highlights epidemiologic data on the scope and distribution of migraine with an emphasis on chronic migraine, practical methods for diagnosing chronic migraine, and recent insights into the mechanisms of the disorder, setting the stage for improving treatment outcomes for this most disabling of headache disorders. The CMEP is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of migraine with an emphasis on chronic migraine, as well as to better diagnose and treat these serious problems. This program complements C90: Comprehensive Migraine Education Program II: Behavioral and Psychological Approaches, and Preventative and Acute Treatment Advances, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to apply criteria for the clinical diagnosis and differential diagnosis of chronic migraine and episodic migraine using diagnostic algorithms; recognize the scope, burden, and distribution of chronic migraine in the population as well as the risk factors that predispose to it; and describe emerging insights into the pathophysiology of chronic migraine.
