The National Headache Foundation (NHF) launched Primary Care Migraine, a new educational training program available at no cost to health practitioners. The program was announced by Tom Dabertin, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of the National Headache Foundation.
- “NHF seeks to offer cutting-edge educational training and tools to help practitioners achieve the highest levels of diagnosis and treatment for patients experiencing migraine disease and headache disorders,” said Dabertin. “The peer-reviewed program focuses on diagnosis, secondary headache, acute therapy, and prevention and was just developed with the latest science and treatments.”
Dabertin said there are four 30-minute online modules to complete:
- Module 1: The Diagnosis of Migraine in Primary Care
- Module 2: Secondary Headache Disorders in Primary Care
- Module 3: ABCs of Acute Therapy in Primary Care
- Module 4: ABCs of Preventive Therapy in Primary Care
The course also offers a diagnosis tool to assist one in quickly diagnosing migraine while interviewing and examining patients. Dabertin said participation includes two hours of free CME and a complimentary membership to the National Headache Foundation.
“We aimed for convenience in developing this professional continuing education,” he added. “The app and web-based training allow practitioners to complete the training on their own schedule.”
