PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Research has led to an improved understanding of the pathophysiology of migraine, as well as the subsequent development of therapeutic agents shown to improve the prevention and management of the condition. Elucidating the role of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in the development of migraine (in particular chronic migraine) can aid clinicians in improving the management of their patients and optimizing outcomes.

This CME activity, New Therapeutic Options for Migraine: The Role of Nurse Practitioners in Patient Management, will address the integral role of nurse practitioners in migraine management, review current evidence in the diagnosis and treatment of migraine, describe the role of CGRP in migraine pathophysiology, and examine the role and placement of newly approved CGRP-targeted therapies.
