C241 - Case Studies: Challenging Headache Cases

Event Time: Thursday May 9, 2019 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Topic(s): Headache, Advanced Practice Provider
Director(s): Kathleen Digre MD, FAAN
Description: We learn the basics and guidelines on many headache diagnoses and treatments, but how do we apply this knowledge to real-life cases that we are challenged by in every day practice where the basics are not enough and even guidelines do not help us? This course is designed to challenge the attendee and the presenters as we work through complex headache cases - highlighting challenges to diagnosis, evaluation, interpretation, and treatment of complex cases. Faculty will highlight guidelines and best practice, with the assumption that attendees have had some basic headache background and are willing to grapple with complex issues in headache through discussion, sharing, and even debate. There will be an interactive "NAME THAT HEADACHE" section for attendees to test their knowledge interspersed between the cases. Cases will be posted ahead of time, the answers with references and key points about the cases will be posted upon completion of the session.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to diagnose a variety of headache disorders often with confusing presentations, formulate treatment plans that can incorporate multi-disciplinary regimens, analyze drug treatment side effects as well as interactions in therapeutic options, recognize the importance of co-morbidities that contribute to complexity in headache diagnosis and treatment, and integrate these factors into a therapeutic plan.
CME Credits: 3
Core Competencies: Patient Care, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Medical Knowledge, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement
