Migraines in the Audiology Clinic: What You Need to Know (0.1 AAA CEUs/Tier 1)

Presenter: 

Samuel N. Bittel, AuD


CEUs: 0.1 AAA/Tier 1

Duration: 60 minutes

Instructional Level: Intermediate

Program Focus: Knowledge 

Description:

Migraine is a common and complex neurological disorder that includes a number of audiovestibular issues including tinnitus, hearing loss, and vertigo. Audiologists will encounter migraine in clinic, so they should be well-versed in understanding this condition and its management.

Although information related to migraine is often included in the audiological literature, this information is often incomplete, and/or fails to truly describe the connection (or lack thereof) between migraine and ear pathology. This webinar will bridge the gap between the current understandings of migraine and what might be encountered by an audiologist in practice.

We will provide a detailed description of migraine, including epidemiology, the underlying mechanisms and physiology of migraine, medical and non-medical management strategies, the connection between migraine and peripheral ear disorders, misconceptions and misinformation in the audiology literature, pediatric migraine, and case studies.

Participants will gain relevant information that will be immediately applicable in the audiology clinic.


Learning Outcomes:  

1. Learners will be able to describe the pathophysiology of migraine.

2. Learners will be able to describe how migraines present in the audiology clinic.

3. Learners will gain insight into managing and triaging patients with migraine.
