About this book

This engaging and highly practical title is designed to support healthcare professionals in providing the best possible care for their patients with migraine. Developed by two leading authorities in the field who bring wit and warmth to their writing, the book combines the valuable wisdom of their clinical expertise with cutting edge scientific synthesis and helpful clinical pearls. Replete with a plethora of instructional aids and clinical tools (such as patient handouts, questionnaires, checklists, video clips, and quick-reference boxes), Discussing Migraine with Your Patients: A Common Sense Guide for Clinicians reviews migraine treatment in an evidence-based manner -- according to the empirical data and FDA and consensus-based guidelines. Discussion topics include acute and preventive pharmacotherapy, medical interventions and devices, behavioral and psychological nonpharmacologic therapies, education, trigger management, healthy lifestyle practices, stress management, neutraceuticals, and alternative medicine offerings. In addition, this easy-to-read title covers genetics and pathophysiology, symptoms and comorbidities, and a range of essential clinical skills that are useful in achieving the best possible outcomes with patients. In invaluable addition to the literature, this title will serve as the ultimate go-to resource for primary care clinicians and trainees. Headache specialists, too, will find value in this work.

Reviews

“This is a volume with a lot in it and a lot to offer to many who read it. It is worth taking it for a spin and using some of these ‘talking points’ on a regular basis. Hopefully these techniques help some of your patients and in the process, help readers, including myself, understand the important role humanity plays for patients who entrust their care to us daily.” (R. Allan Purdy, Headache - The Journal of Head and Face Pain, Vol. 57 (9), October, 2017)

“This is a book that opens up possibilities for people with headache and those who care for them. Dawn A. Marcus, MD, and Duren Michael Ready, MD, provide a welcome addition to the essential titles for helping primary care and headache specialists provide the best care for those with common and complex headache disorders.” (Robert A. Bonakder, Practical Pain Management, practicalpainmanagement.com, August, 2017)
