Physicians receive little training on migraine in medical school. The Canadian Headache Society (CHS) has developed an accredited online-learning platform on advancing migraine management in primary care. The program has been certified by the College of Family physicians of Canada. All physicians in Canada are required to complete a certain number of accredited learning each year!
YOU can play a role in improving migraine care in Canada by sharing information on the Mastermind program with your doctor (and clinic staff). You don’t need to feel awkward. You have the right to provide information that will further education on migraine with the healthcare professionals trying to help you manage your condition.
One last thing….in mastermind, learners are taught to never tell patients to give up, since so many options for treatments are now available. That is a crucial concept for our community!
The mastermind self-learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 8 Mainpro+ credits.
This program was supported in part by an unrestricted educational grant from Allergan (an Abbvie company), Eli Lilly Canada, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Canada and Teva Canada.
