Caring for Youth with Migraine and Other Headache Disorders: What the Evidence Suggests

Practice Guidelines for the acute and preventive care of youth with migraine have recently been updated (Oskoui et al., Neurology and Headache, 2019). Major clinical trials funded by the US National Institutes of Health have been published in the last decade (Powers et al., JAMA 2013; Powers et al., NEJM 2017; Powers et al., JAMA Network Open 2021). This course will provide a contemporary update on how the evidence base is translated into current interdisciplinary care internationally.I Experts in pediatric headache medicine will provide an update on migraine and other headache disorders in children, adolescents, and young adults. The group includes two pediatric neurologists/headache specialists, a pediatric nurse practitioner, and a pediatric psychologist. They will focus on the following topics: The Current Evidence Base for Acute and Preventive Treatment; Application of the Current Evidence into Interdisciplinary Headache Medicine Practice: A Headache Specialist View and a Nurse Practitioner View, including case examples, and the Research Horizon: What Current and Future Studies are Needed to Advance Understanding and Care. Attendees will acquire up-to-date knowledge on current practice guidelines, where the many gaps in our understanding exist, and ongoing investigations that aim to close clinically-relevant gaps in the evidence base. The group will highlight the importance of applying a biopsychosocial and interdisciplinary model of care and how team science is the key to advancing the field.
