An estimated 4.9 million Australians experience migraine causing significant pain, suffering and loss of wellbeing. Globally, migraine is the sixth highest cause of disability, and the third highest for people aged <50 years. Preventive treatments play an important role in the management of migraine for a proportion of those affected. The new CGRP inhibitor class was specifically developed for the treatment of migraine and overcomes many limitations of previous preventive therapies, thereby providing an opportunity for GPs to improve outcomes in patients with migraine.

This 1-hour RACGP accredited activity aims to empower GPs to diagnose and adopt best practice management of migraines to improve quality of life and functional outcomes for patients. It features two cases studies and expert video interviews from the faculty.


This program is supported by an independent educational grant provided by Eli Lilly.
