MALVERN Pa., (July 18, 2022) — HMP Education, the leader in providing practical education that improves care quality and patient outcomes and subsidiary of HMP Global, recently expanded the Migraine360 series for healthcare providers to learn emerging treatments and research-based best practices in migraine diagnosis, care, and prevention.
The series is made possible through a grant from Biohaven Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and allows clinicians to engage with respected faculty to discuss the most pressing issues facing primary care providers in the treatment of migraines. Participants will have the opportunity to network with like-minded peers and learn best practices for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of migraines.
The expanded program includes an in-person dinner series in 30 locations throughout the United States beginning in August, and five virtual courses beginning in September. The agenda will feature practical education on updates and best practices in treating patients with migraines, presented by leading experts.
“Migraine remains both extremely debilitating and undertreated, particularly among traditionally underserved populations,” said Randy Robbin, President, HMP Education. “Many newer and novel options are entering the treatment landscape. The Migraine360 series is designed to address knowledge and practice gaps among primary care providers and other clinicians who care for patients with migraines.”
Migraine is a common neurobiological headache disorder that ranks among the world’s most disabling medical illnesses. More than 36 million Americans currently experience migraines, with an estimated one in three patients in primary care experiencing migraines.
