This seminar about Migraine in Children and Adolescents, addressed in Spanish, will allow participants to learn and/or review the diagnostic criteria, epidemiology, therapeutic modalities, economic impact and quality of life data regarding Migraine in the Pediatric population in The Americas. Through lecture format and case presentation, participants will learn and/or review therapeutic modalities for migraine, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acute medications, preventive medications, “natural” treatments and neuromodulation. Participants will learn about “ointments, concoctions and potions” and will learn perspectives related to the level of scientific evidence for each therap. Participants will learn about health habit modification, accommodations in school, exercise, meditation and psychiatric comorbidities for patients with migraine. In addition, participants will learn about the similarities and differences in the practice of pediatric neurology (US vs Canada vs Latin America), as it relates to the regional, cultural and social norms, as well as the resources available to each demographic.
As a result of this educational session participants will be able to:
- Know the diagnostic criteria, epidemiology, therapeutic modalities, economic impact and quality of life data regarding Migraine in the Pediatric population in The Americas.
- Know the importance of health habit modification, accommodations in school, exercise, meditation and addressing psychiatric comorbidities for pediatric patients with migraine.
Impact Statements This educational session helped me to identify changes I could make in my practice related to:
- Implementing a comprehensive plan for the management of migraine in the pediatric population that includes pharmacological as well as non- pharmacological therapies.
- Implementing actions that will address reintegration to school and management of psychiatric comorbidities in patients with migraine.
