Event description

Description

Migraine is a complex neurological condition that has a debilitating effect on the lives of the estimated 500,000 Irish people who suffer from the condition. Worldwide, migraine is the third cause of disability in the under 50’s.

Many chronic migraine sufferers often turn to over the counter medications to deal with their daily pain and unfortunately that exacerbates the condition and can give rise to Medication Overuse Headache. These headaches are characterised by a near constant low-intensity pain and it only presents in people who have migraine.

Many patients currently presenting at specialist migraine clinics are actually suffering from Medication Overuse Headache and this condition can be avoided by correct and timely treatment and intervention for migraine in the primary care setting. With time and budgetary pressures on local GP’s and Health Professionals, this FREE information seminar will better equip HCP’s with additional skills to correctly diagnose and treat migraine.

The seminar is presented by Dr. Tom Monaghan (MRCPI), Consultant Neurologist at University Hospital Galway who will advise on differentiation and treatment options for different types of migraine (menstrual migraine, migraine in children, exercise related migraine) and he will also give an overview of the treatment options available for chronic patients.

(THIS SEMINAR IS FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND THE CONTENT AND Q&A SECTION WILL BE TARGETED TO HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS. Please attend one of our Free Public Information Seminars if you are a patient and our upcoming events are listed on www.migraine.ie )


The seminar takes place in University Hospital Galway in the Small Lecture Theatre in the Clinical Sciences Institute on the 23rd January 2018, 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.


2 RCPI, CPD Points are available to attending GP’s and 2 NMBI CPD Points for attending nurses and midwives.
