Migraine headache can be challenging to manage due to its presentation as a chronic condition with acute episodes. Optimal management of migraines requires an interdisciplinary approach that addresses the wide range of biopsychosocial factors that play a role in its onset and maintenance. Through representative case presentations, this course will illustrate best practices for comprehensive care of patients with difficult to manage headaches.
