Event Time: Tuesday April 24, 2018 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Headache, Foundations in Clinical Neurology
Director(s): Christopher Boes MD, FAAN
Description: Primary headache disorders are those that are not attributable to an underlying secondary condition, like a 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 Classification of Headache Disorders 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. Faculty will focus on the trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias and lesser known headache conditions, including new daily persistent headache, cough headache, exercise headache, headache associated with sexual activity, and primary thunderclap headache. This program complements C108: Introduction to Primary Headache Disorders I: Migraine and Other Primary Headaches Including Tension-Type, Hypnic, Primary Stabbing and Nummular Headache Syndromes, Epicrania Fugax and Retinal Migraine, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with how to diagnose and treat various primary headache disorders; become familiar with the International Classification of Headache Disorders, 3rd edition (beta version); be able to define various subtypes of trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias; and identify specific treatment for these subtypes.
