AMD Launches A Migraine CME Course for Medical Professionals
Migraine CME Course Launched for Medical Professionals
The Association of Migraine Disorders launches a comprehensive, online, continuing education course on the diagnosis and treatment of migraine.
Providence, R.I. (October, 2020) – The Association of Migraine Disorders (AMD) welcomes medical professionals of all specialties and skill levels to complete a free, comprehensive continuing medical course on migraine.
A Migraine Toolbox: A Practical Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment, is free and available in its entirety on MyCME.com. The course consists of four modules: Diagnosis, Treatment, Speciality Care, and Speciality Care Continued.
With physicians receiving an average of only four hours on all headache diseases throughout medical school, many count on post-graduate continuing medical education to expand their training. The Migraine Toolbox modules include resources that can be applied directly to practice, including downloadable guides, patient materials, questionnaires, and more.
“There is a vital need for more health care providers to be familiar with the diagnosis and treatment of this complex disease. There are 567 headache specialists in the country, which isn’t nearly enough to care for the 40 million Americans who live with the disease. It is imperative for primary care physicians, physician assistants, specialists, nurse practitioners, and nurses to be educated about migraine and headache disease,” said Dr. Rick Godley, president and founder of AMD
The full course is accredited for up to 6.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit/AAFP Prescribed Credit/CNE Contact Hour/CE for Pharmacist (.65 CEU)/CDE Credits.
The course is jointly provided by the Boston University School of Medicine and the Association of Migraine Disorders. It was created in collaboration with Brown University Alpert Medicine School. CME credits for pharmacists are provided by the University of Rhode Island. The program is supported by a contribution from the Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation
